A welcome message from the Pro Vice-Chancellor


The Faculty of Health provides education and research which reflects a deep commitment to the health of individuals and communities in the Northern Territory, Australia and globally. Located  across Australia, our students, teaching staff and researchers are uniquely positioned to explore health issues that are of national and regional significance. These include cancer, tropical medicine, exercise and sport science, Indigenous health, community wellbeing, birthing on country and mental health.

The Faculty has a complete suite of health and allied health programs: from post graduate medical and health specilisations through to Nursing and Health programs. From social work to biomedical sciences, from creative therapies to pharmacy and from midwifery to medical laboratory sciences the Faculty provides a workforce and professional development for the Northern Territory, Australia and beyond.

The work to expand our portfolio continues and we have aspirations to develop further; with more allied health programs (e.g. oral health), and specific programs for our First Nation Communities and ultimately, Medicine.

In order to achieve this, we need more colleagues to join our growing and excellent team. If you are interested in developing your career in one of the most progressive Faculties in one of the most exciting and enriching areas of Australia, then please view some messages from those already at the University and feel free to contact us if you have any questions or queries.

I look forward to hearing from you in the not too distant future.
