Med students reject proposal for new school

WA medical students have branded their state government “myopic” after it was announced that a third medical school is scheduled to open in WA in 2016.

Plans by Curtin University to boost medical student numbers with a new school are “extremely concerning” say students, who claim the move would only exacerbate the current shortfall of internship places for new graduates.

“This will put further pressure on an already overburdened training system, without addressing the workforce issues affecting our communities,” said
