The School of Medicine Fremantle offers a Doctor of Medicine (MD) that has been fully accredited by the Australian Medical Council of Australia and is highly ranked by graduates in national surveys. Key features include a focus on small group teaching and problem-based learning, combined with rich clinical experiences across the entire program. The School embraces its responsibility to make a contribution to improving healthcare outcomes for all Australians. This commitment includes developing a better understanding of the needs of indigenous Australians, providing opportunities for students to experience rural and remote medicine and a curriculum which embeds bioethics, advocacy and social justice. At the heart of the program is a research stream that builds student capabilities over the four years and the School encourages research at the Masters and PhD level.

In addition to the Doctor of Medicine program, the School offers several health education programs to assist health professionals to develop their capabilities as educators. These multimedia-rich programs are available online and through mobile devices and are supported by expert facilitators.
