Clinical Schools

Deakin Medical School has several rural and regional training locations. The Medical School's major presence is based on Deakin's Waurn Ponds campus near Geelong. This site provides the facilities for the first two years' instruction for all students, plus the School's administration and research groups.

In addition teaching sites have been established to provide for the training of students during their third and fourth years of study. These have been aligned with hospitals, health services and clinics in numerous areas. The larger clinical schools are linked with Barwon Health in Geelong, with Eastern Health in Melbourne, plus with the regional centres of Ballarat and Warrnambool. Finally, the School's Rural Community Clinical School (RCCS) provides students with the option of parallel consulting during their third year via placements in smaller rural and regional towns.
