Welcome from Deputy Head of School - Research
The School of Medicine and Public Health would like to formally acknowledge and thank the Indigenous people, particularly the Pambalong clan of the Awabakal, Darkinjung and Birapai peoples, the original custodians of the lands occupied and used by our School.
The University of Newcastle is ranked nationally in Australia's top 10 research Universities, with the School of Medicine and Public Health one of the major contributors.
The School comprises a multi-disciplinary team of researchers, many of whom are recognised as world-leaders in their field, focusing on national health priorities including: asthma, cancer, cardiovascular disease and mental health as well as indigenous health, primary health care, prevention and community health.
Our school is committed to ongoing support of research degree candidates. We provide a high standard of research supervision in addition to material resources including financial support, laptop computers, office space and equipment, and writing and presentation skills workshops.
The School of Medicine and Public Health provides a transparent top-up arrangement for externally funded nationally competitive research fellows to ensure that academic appointment is commensurate with experience or current appointment. We also provide support for researchers applying for grants including application review, assistance with writing rebuttals, and mock interviews.
We are very proud to be associated with a number of cutting edge Priority Research Centres across the University in addition to School of Medicine and Public Health research centres and groups.
