Introducing the UWA Doctor of Medicine program

Program Overview – Doctor of Medicine (MD)

The UWA Doctor of Medicine (MD) program at the University of Western Australia is a highly integrated and contextualised course with many innovative features to equip graduates with the capabilities to work as a doctor in Australian and around the world.

The overall aim of the MD program is to prepare students to become accountable, scholarly, capable and caring doctors, committed to the well-being of the patient, of the community and of society. This includes teaching in professionalism, leadership, advocacy, education and scholarly practice.

The Doctor of Medicine is structured around six core themes: Professional, Leader, Advocate, Clinician, Educator, and Scholar (PLACES). The PLACES curriculum structure encourages students to learn about the humanistic and non-technical aspects of being a doctor, while continuing to emphasise the importance of developing clinical competence and scholarly capabilities.

Program: Doctor of Medicine (MD)
Location: Perth, Western Australia
Semester intake: January
Duration: 4 years
Application deadline: May 30, 2017; however, candidates are encouraged to apply as early as possible.
