Department of Clinical Medicine

We strive to integrate internationally-renowned research with exemplary teaching and training in clinical practice with a focus on optimal patient care.

The Department of Clinical Medicine is central to Macquarie University’s initiative to develop Australia’s first fully-integrated health sciences centre under university leadership.

The department maintains active academic strengths in cancer medicine, neuroscience and vascular science and has established leading research programs in these areas of expertise.

Our close relationship with Macquarie University Hospital provides a unique opportunity for both translational and health services research, as do the strong internal partnerships across the Faculty, the Clinical Trials Unit and the on-site resources of Cochlear and the Australian Hearing Hub.

Students are encouraged to foster a fresh approach towards learning. Opportunities for hands-on experience are readily available through the academic health campus with access to PC2 (physical contaminant 2), simulation and anatomy laboratories and medical clinics.

Together with the outstanding clinical environment, excellent infrastructural and supervisory resources, we’re able to offer an unrivalled platform of learning for medical and research students.

Our strategic intent is to continue building on these nationally and internationally recognised research and clinical programs attracting collaborators, top-class academics, clinicians and researchers and making Macquarie University a destination of choice for clinical care, learning and research.
