Curtin Medical School
2016: Curtin Medical School is completed in time to welcome its first cohort of students in 2017. The building's interior has been designed by Curtin interior architecture students, with each floor featuring a unique aesthetic.

The initial intake will be 60 students, which will increase to 120 by 2022. The Medical School offers school leavers a five-year, direct-entry medicine degree in Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery. This will be the only undergraduate entry program available in Western Australia, with two other universities requiring the completion of a three-year Bachelor degree prior to entering a four-year medical course.

The External Advisory Board is comprised of university academics, medical practitioners and industry advisors who aim to develop capable and compassionate doctors willing and able to work where they are needed most. A strong emphasis on primary care, chronic disease, ageing, Indigenous and regional health, will encourage graduates to meet the needs of currently under-serviced areas of health care.

Students will complete part of their clinical education at Curtin’s future Midland Campus.
