Curtin University

Perth, Australia

From 2019 (2020 University Entry) the UCAT will replace the UMAT.

Bachelor of Medicine / Bachelor of Surgery

The Curtin Medical School, which is part of the Faculty of Health Sciences, has been approved by the Federal Government for commencement in 2017. Curtin’s five year direct-entry medical degree will be the only undergraduate entry program in the State, and will have a strong emphasis on primary care, which will position graduates well for rural and remote practice, as well as outer suburban locations, where there is an acute shortage of doctors.

Curtin will have an initial intake of 60 domestic places, with ten additional places per year for the subsequent five years to a maximum of 110 domestic places. After the first cohort of domestic students has graduated, full-fee paying international students will be accepted, eventually increasing to ten international places per year.
