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.
