A med-school move in Darwin

Charles Darwin U VC Scott Bowman does not muck around – launching in October the campaign for a med school by 2023

Now CDU and the Menzies School of Health Research in Darwin combine to create a school of medicine, starting first semester next year and teaching PG courses in health emergency preparedness and response.

Dianne Stephens is seconded from the National Critical Care and Trauma Response Centre to be inaugural dean.

CDU adds a steering group will be appointed to oversee the school and “to seek Australian Government support for government-supported places for medical students in the Territory.”
