Successful engagement with a range of partners is key to improving the health of the broader community. We are proud of our strong and valuable connections to government bodies, industry and our community.
For our students, these collaborations ensure an enriched learning experience where they have the opportunity to continually put into practice the theory and hands-on skills they learn throughout the degree.
For our researchers these relationships provide the foundation for growth and the potential for breakthrough discoveries and innovation.
One of the most significant examples of this commitment is the Hunter Medical Research Institute (HMRI). Established in 1998, HMRI has grown to become one of the state's leading institutes, drawing together basic biomedical, clinical and public health researchers from Hunter New England Local Health District, the University of Newcastle and Calvary Mater Newcastle.
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.
