Faculty of Health and Medicine

Welcome to the Faculty of Health and Medicine, an innovative and dynamic research-intensive faculty.

In collaboration with our external partners and stakeholders, the Faculty strives to make a difference by preparing exemplary, career ready health care and health research professionals, and producing world-leading research that builds capacity for excellence in healthcare intervention.

Our ability to achieve these goals can only occur through an ongoing commitment to our people - the exemplary students we help nurture, the staff that we support to achieve excellence in their chosen fields, and our continued mutually beneficial engagement with local, national and international communities.

If you are a current student, I'd like to take this opportunity to wish you all the best with your study. For those of you considering studying, working or collaborating with us, I encourage you to take the time to have a look and see what our Faculty has to offer.

On behalf of the staff and current students of the Faculty of Health and Medicine, I welcome you.

The University of Newcastle acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands within our footprint areas: Awabakal, Darkinjung, Biripai, Worimi, Wonnarua, and Eora Nations. We also pay respect to the wisdom of our Elders past and present.
