The Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences is an extremely diverse faculty comprised of a number of schools, departments and centres with a proud history and a promising future.
The small size of the Department permits an intense focus on research and integration of research into practice. We are a research-led academic department in which an evidence base is implanted in all of our functions. We have robust research relationships with key health providers including Melbourne Health, the Royal Children's Hospital, Peter McCallum Cancer Centre and St Vincent's Hospital. The Department has a significant research profile and close local and national links with important human service and health agencies in the government and non government sectors, professional bodies and other major nursing departments internationally. We house the active and influential Centre for Psychiatric Nursing. The Department is recognised as a leader in nursing research and education in the Asia-Pacific region and internationally.
General Practice began as a Unit within the Department of Community Medicine in 1977 and in 2001 was established as a separate clinical department within the School of Medicine; Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences.
The Department was established in 2015 to continue the curriculum development success of the former Medical Education Unit (MEU) but with a broader focus on all aspects of Medical Education scholarship. With a central base at Parkville and academic activity at all of the Clinical Schools, we are working towards becoming a centre of excellence in the scholarly discipline of Medical Education.
Social Work, in the Melbourne School of Health Sciences, is a vibrant learning community which seeks to influence professional practice through high quality educational experiences for our students, the conduct of practice-based research and engagement.
The Department is embedded within some of the leading academic public hospitals in Australia, and the strong partnership with these hospitals is critical to the work of the Department.
