Western Sydney University Doctor of Medicine Overview

Our Doctor of Medicine is an innovative degree that combines problem-based learning and clinical practice with leading theory and research. Taught out of our world class facilities, our School of Medicine is one of the most advanced medical training centres in Australia.

Since welcoming its first students in 2007, the School of Medicine has graduated doctors who are completing further training in the full range of specialty areas and who are making an important contribution to the care of patients.

From 2021, Western Sydney and Charles Sturt University will be delivering a Doctor of Medicine (MD) program together, making this program available on both sides of the Blue Mountains. . The Joint Program in Medicine is a five-year undergraduate entry degree that qualifies you to be a medical intern in Australia and New Zealand.   More than 600 students have graduated and entered the medical profession.

Medicine is a vertically and horizontally integrated curriculum, centered on problem-based learning. Four themes run throughout the course: patient care, health in the community, personal and professional development, scientific basis of medicine. Patient contact and clinical learning begins in the first weeks and continues throughout the program.

Our program is designed to prepare you for your future medical career. Combining a solid understanding of the medical sciences, a focus on experiential learning in clinical settings and supporting your professional development, our five year course is open to both school leavers and those with some partial or completed university experience.  Students will have access to state of the art research facilities and a brand new purpose built facility.

Course Structure

Course Structure

The Doctor of Medicine (MD) prepares you to be a doctor who can work safely, competently and effectively across the continuum of medical practice and to enter training in any medical specialty. So that you are ready for graduate practice, you will learn through experience and immersion in a broad range of hospital and community-based services throughout the five year program.

From the first weeks, you will learn from real patients, supported by small group collaborative learning at the bedside and on campus. In the first two years, you will learn and apply the biomedical sciences to clinical problems, acquire and practice clinical and research skills. With guidance, you will build your personal learning journey by creating a portfolio of evidence of your learning.

After second year, students with a passion for research may choose to do an additional year to gain the Bachelor of Medical Research.

In the third year, you will extend and apply your knowledge and practical skills in full-time clinical and community placements and commence a significant project, to complete the requirements for the Bachelor of Clinical Science.

In the fourth and final years, you will build your clinical experience through placements in specialty and subspecialty medicine, ranging from major metropolitan hospitals to general practices and Aboriginal medical services, in rural and remote areas. During this final phase, you will complete your project and portfolio to graduate with Doctor of Medicine and a Bachelor of Clinical Science.
