It’s these benefits that will ensure you’re well-placed to launch or further your career upon graduating.

A number of Curtin health sciences academics have been awarded a National Teaching Fellowship by the Australian Government’s Office for Learning and Teaching. These awards recognise top Australian university academics who’ve made a significant contribution to enhancing the quality of student learning.

INTERNATIONAL PROGRAMS AND ACCREDITATION Many of our health sciences courses are accredited, allowing you to make a real difference to healthcare in other countries around the globe, but you don’t need to wait until you graduate. The award-winning Go Global program gives you the chance to be immersed in a different culture while completing a fieldwork placement in Cambodia, China, India, Malaysia or the Philippines.
