The Western Sydney University School of Medicine is a constituent body of the College of Health and Science at Western Sydney University, Australia.

It became the third medical school offering degrees for medical practice in Sydney. In 2007 the Bachelor of Medicine/Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) degree was offered for the first time. It is hoped that many of the School's graduates will practice in the Western Sydney region, in order to redress the shortage of healthcare professionals in the area. The Medical School is located on the University's Campbelltown campus.
