Medicine and optometry at Deakin
We train doctors and optometrists who are skilled and motivated. Our students go on to pursue careers in metropolitan, rural and regional areas.
Our optometry learning environment
Teaching is delivered from our purpose-built facility in the Regional and Community Health Hub (REACH) building.
It's equipped with case-based-learning tutorial rooms and a state-of-the-art, multi-purpose clinical skills laboratory.
There's also a fully-fitted optometry practice for simulation, examination and research and a 200-seat lecture theatre designed to enable team-based learning.
ReVise is a medical simulation centre of high standard, capable of delivering accessible and relevant programs to various groups. These include students from Deakin medical school, undergraduate, postgraduate and vocational trainees from a wide range of health disciplines throughout rural and regional Victoria.
Our medical imaging learning environment
Using the latest equipment, our students learn basic x-ray techniques before proceeding to more complex medical imaging procedures, such as mammography, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ultrasound (U/S).
University-based classes and labs are also conducted at REACH, where a full suite of simulated and real imaging equipment enables students to develop their pre-clinical skills.
