Advances in medicine rely on advances in knowledge. It’s why over 10 years ago, Western created a new kind of School of Medicine. Since then we’ve seen more than 600 graduates enter the medical profession and make a difference.
Medicine is a vertically and horizontally integrated curriculum, centred 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 world-class facilities boast simulated learning spaces for clinical skills, an anatomy lab, research facilities, and our new neuroscience behavioural investigation lab. It’s why our School of Medicine is one of the most advanced medical training centres in Australia.
Undertake clinical placements across Greater Western Sydney and rural NSW during your third to fifth years.
