Curtin medical students now have training certainty with the signing of an agreement between Curtin University and St John of God Health Care which will provide clinical placements at St John of God Midland Public Hospital. The hospital will begin receiving medical students from next year. Curtin’s Midland campus, which will run medical, nursing, allied health and business courses, will open in 2020 and when that is in full swing, SJG Midland CEO Michael Hogan said the hospital would initially provide 60 student placements, though that number was expected to increase over the years.
