School of Health Sciences
The School of Health Sciences excels in the teaching and learning of allied health professionals, and offers study with a strong clinical focus in the nine health professions represented within the School.
Working together to educate future health care workers in a multi-professional health care environment, our School combines groundbreaking research with strong links to the professions through clinical placements.
The School of Health Sciences has undergone substantial development in the area of research in recent years, and continues to pursue a promising future. Our world class researchers are achieving some exceptional results.
The School of Health Sciences has specialised teaching laboratories for programs at both the Newcastle and Central Coast campuses. Students learn and refine their practical skills required for professional practice in these laboratories prior to undertaking clinical or other professional placements.
Our staff strike a balance between advancing the professional research profile of their respective areas and working together to educate future health care workers in a multi-professional health care environment. We have three teaching clinics, an oral health clinic, podiatry clinic, and an occupational therapy clinic, giving students the opportunity to practice their skills and get real-world experience under the guidance of our highly skilled teaching staff.
