Vice-Chancellor Professor Bruce S Dowton has announced the establishment of a new Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences at Macquarie University.

The Academic Health Sciences Centre is a partnership between Macquarie University and healthcare providers, with an integrated approach to research, clinical services, education and training. This research and healthcare model is used by many of the world’s leading academic institutions and hospitals, including Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, UCLA and Mayo Clinic. It ensures that medical research breakthroughs lead to direct clinical benefits for patients.

There are similar models in operation in Canada, the Netherlands, Singapore, Sweden, and the United Kingdom, but a university-led and located Centre has not been established in Australia to date.

Macquarie University already boasts Australia’s only high-technology private hospital owned and operated by a university and a postgraduate medical research and teaching school. With the establishment of a medical faculty, it has passed another important milestone.

“Macquarie University is unique among Australian universities, with maturity and achievement in our University Hospital and the Australian School of Advanced Medicine. Evidence from the US confirms that bringing these enterprises into full convergence improves healthcare and patient outcomes, and accelerates the conversion of laboratory?based discovery into clinical practice, enabling us to deliver a level of healthcare unprecedented in this country that will benefit all of our society.” say Professor Dowton.
