The Faculty of Health Sciences offers a range of facilities that allow for real-world learning in safe environments, under the supervision of experienced staff. Some of these facilities simulate the experience of a healthcare setting to prepare you for practice, while others are functional clinics where you can directly help members of the public in Perth and regional Western Australia. We also offer specialised research facilities to support funded research projects across the University and beyond.
Anatomy and physical health laboratories
You’ll gain a comprehensive understanding of anatomy and how the human body works at our specialised laboratories.
You may undertake practical placements at our operational clinics around the Perth Metropolitan Area and apply your new knowledge to real patients under the guidance of a qualified healthcare supervisor.
Midland and Kalgoorlie facilities
Our campus in Midland, to Perth’s east, and Curtin Kalgoorlie, in the Goldfields-Esperance region, are helping to address shortages in the health workforce by providing students with opportunities to learn and practice in underserviced, rural and remote settings.
If you study pharmacy, you’ll gain a competitive edge training in our multi-million-dollar model pharmacy dispensary, which simulates a range of real-life settings such as a community pharmacy.
Physical Containment Level 2 Laboratory
This facility will allow you to develop the general and specialised skill set required for the analyses of samples and report results in the same way as an industry pathology laboratory.
In these laboratories, postgraduate psychology students are investigating neurodegenerative diseases and mental health conditions, and analysing the effectiveness of treatment plans.
Simulated care settings
Students and researchers in health sciences learn relevant skills in state-of-the-art facilities.
We’re rethinking how students can gain an enhanced understanding of their field through the latest technologies and virtual reality simulations.
