Faculty of Medicine and Health

The Faculty of Medicine and Health is at the forefront of medical futures, and has been established to ensure UNE is best placed to prepare students for the world ahead.

Health is a growing and rapidly changing sector. New preventive approaches, new technologies, new diagnostic tests and curative procedures are reshaping the way we think about Medicine. Student health professionals are entering a field that is opening up before them.

The Faculty offers courses, training, and research opportunities in a full range of scientific and clinical disciplines, including Psychology, Health Sciences, Counselling, Health Management, Nursing, Social Work, Medicine and Pharmacy. We are committed to improving the well-being of individuals, families, communities, and populations through diverse programmes, collaborative research, and strong community partnerships.

Teaching and Learning

The Faculty’s newly established New England Health Immersive Learning Environment provides a learning experience for our students that guides your learning with far greater depth and breadth than can be achieved using more traditional methods. The Faculty’s focus on developing a track record in quality teaching and research, and building a critical mass of teaching and research staff, will underpin our strong brand recognition as leaders in health education.

Research

The Faculty’s newly established the New England Institute for Healthcare Research contains research teams that have affiliations with the Hunter New England Local Health District, and formal networks of researchers and practitioners throughout the world. The Faculty takes advantage of UNEs strengths in data science and developing strength in rural and tele-health to develop new approaches to healthcare based on increasingly available data and Information and communication technology capabilities.  The government’s focused funding for research translation plays to UNE’s strength as a university embedded in its community.

Now is an exciting time for all people wanting to become a health professional. UNE has a growing reputation for our intellectual innovation, courage, and community-focused achievements. We look forward to stepping forward with you into the world we together can create.
