Scholarly activity is a distinctive feature of the UWA Doctor of Medicine (MD) degree.

It allows students to explore the development and application of scholarship in a strikingly diverse range of contexts, broadly grouped into three streams:

  • Service
  • Research
  • Coursework

Students chose their preferred stream, which becomes the focus of their scholarly activity undertaken in years three and four of the program.

Service

Students who select service learning will be matched with an Not-for-profit (NFP) organisation for years three and four of the program. Students will work on a clinically significant project that the organisation identifies.

Research

Students who choose research as their scholarly activity will be matched with a research team for years three and four of the program. They will work on a clinically significant project that the research Principle Investigator identifies.

Coursework

Students who chose coursework are now able to complete units towards a further approved degree in Public Health and Health Professions Education. Students can chose units that contribute towards master's qualifications as a core part of their degree. Students who chose coursework will undertake approved units for years three and four of the program.
