Learn in the workplace
All of Deakin's medical, medical imaging and optometry students spend a significant portion of their degree working alongside doctors, surgeons and other medical professionals on clinical placements.
This means you'll enter your chosen profession with plenty of hands-on experience and confidence in dealing directly with patients.
Founded in 2006, the School of Medicine has come a long way. We launched our postgraduate-entry medical degree in 2008 and developed new programs in optometry, medical imaging, and agricultural health and medicine. We have 100+ staff, a thriving research output and over 1,000 successful graduates.

Research with IMPACT
The Centre for Innovation in Mental and Physical Health and Clinical Treatment (IMPACT) is one of a number of our strategic research centres. It puts psychiatric, musculoskeletal and metabolic diseases under the microscope.
Current research at IMPACT includes:
- potential new treatments for bipolar disorder and depression
- the relationship between chronic disease, injury and ageing
- the relationship between gestational vitamin D levels and childhood growth.
The School of Medicine operates a number of rural and regional teaching sites to train students during their third and fourth years of undergraduate study.
Expert staff at the School of Medicine have a wealth of experience to offer.
Partnerships are integral to our school. They help keep our courses relevant and responsive, provide invaluable work placements for our students and give us the opportunity to turn research into real-world treatments and methods.
We collaborate with health services, general practitioners, hospitals, training providers, councils and businesses.
