Honours

The Eastern Hill Campus offers a wide range of exciting, cutting-edge research projects through our Departments: Department of Medicine, St Vincent's Hospital, Department of Surgery, St Vincent's Hospital, and the Department of Otolaryngology (located at the Royal Victorian Eye & Ear Hospital). Students can also conduct their research in our affiliated institutes (St Vincent's Institute, O'Brien Institute, and Bionics Institute among others) as well as in the various departments within St Vincent's Hospital. We also enjoy a close association with the Department of Ophthalmology/ Centre for Eye Research Australia and other medical research institutes such as the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre.

We host around 7 – 10 Honours students each year. Each research group offers a number of Honours projects for prospective students.
