The Discipline of Paediatrics
The Discipline of Obstetrics & Gynaecology
Welcome to the Discipline of Paediatrics and the
Discipline of Obstetrics & Gynaecology
We offer a dynamic research-rich environment that fosters strong links between cutting-edge discoveries in basic and clinical research and their application in evidence-based practice in reproductive, pregnancy and child health.
The disciplines of Obstetrics & Gynaecology and Paediatrics with research focused through the Robinson Research Institute crosses the translation continuum from basic science, clinical research, to epidemiology. We have been consistently ranked in our Field of Research at the highest rating in ERA, with maximum scores of 5 (well above world benchmarks) in 2012 and 2013 and this is the only Australian University to achieve this.
The Disciplines value its postgraduate research students (both Honours and Higher Degree) as these are the future of paediatrics and reproductive health research - both within the University and across the world. We also teach into the undergraduate degrees of Bachelor of Health Sciences (including the Advanced Program) and the Medical degree, offering those students a progressive academic environment, with world leading teachers and researchers.
