Message from the Executive Dean

Message from the Executive Dean

This is our second newsletter for 2013 from the Faculty of Health Sciences and I would like to extend a warm welcome to our new colleagues and students from Psychology, Social Work and Science who will be joining us in 2014 as part of the Futures Project. 2013 has been a year of change for the Faculty; however I am sure that with commitment from all staff these changes will allow Health Sciences to be well positioned in the future. 

By the end of 2014, 11 Clinical Schools will be opened, situated within health organisations across Victoria, Queensland and NSW. Brisbane and Melbourne health clinics have already commenced and the North Sydney clinic will open next year.  These and other initiatives promote scholarship of teaching and learning, research and clinical education and assist our students to achieve improved clinical expertise and be ‘work ready’ when they graduate. 

In 2014 we will also be launching our new Master of High Performance Sport and Master of Mental Health programs, which will augment our postgraduate offerings.  I look forward to the future; with our revised structure and I am confident we can achieve quality learning and research outcomes in Health Sciences.
