Medical practitioners examine the patient to determine the nature of the disorder or illness; provide overall care for patients and prescribe and administer treatments; and order, perform and analyse laboratory tests, X-rays and other diagnostic images and procedures. As a graduate you will initially work as an intern in the hospital system before specialising in a clinical career or continuing research interests in overall public health.

Medical students at UWA come from a variety of backgrounds which results in an incredibly diverse and rewarding learning experience. UWA MD graduates will be committed to the well-being of the patient, community and society as accountable, responsible, scholarly, capable and caring doctors.
