School of Health Professions

Welcome to the School of Health Professions

The School of Health Professions is comprised of Nursing, Chiropractic and Counselling disciplines, with students completing undergraduate and postgraduate courses at both the South Street and Mandurah campuses.

The School is proud to provide students pursuing a career in these areas with some of the best learning and development resources in the state. Nursing students at both our campuses have access to three clinical demonstration wards equipped with state-of-the-art teaching facilities and high tech audiovisual equipment.

Chiropractic students hone their skills at the Murdoch University Chiropractic Clinic (MUCC), which is both a teaching facility and professional treatment centre. This modern, custom designed clinic at the South Street campus features 13 large, modern chiropractic treatment rooms, a digital Radiology Lab and Rehabilitation Centre.

Our Counsellor Training Centre, provides professional counselling services to the public as well as experiential training opportunities for counselling students, who work with real clients, via a Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia (PACFA) accredited course.

Our First Annual Chiropractic Research Day held in July invited the Chiropractic industry, staff, students and alumni on campus to present recent research and publications around Chiropractic Science.

The best poster was awarded to fifth-year students Kai Ren Teo, Jessica Richardson, Gemma Roderick, Kevin Tanadi and Ken Win Kok for their Undergraduate Research Project Poster Presentation, under the supervision of Dr Kenneth Young, DC, entitled 'Adherance to guidelines as represented on the websites of Western Australian Chiropractic Clinics'.

The best podium presentation was awarded to third-year students Nadine Dick and Rebekah Moncton-Riches for their oral presentation related to 'Mild Cognitive Decline of an Elderly Patient: A Case Report'. Their case report was consequent to their aged-care facility placement that is part of the Pre-Clinical Practicum unit during their fourth chiropractic year.
