As the biggest provider of healthcare professionals, our Faculty of Health Sciences is one of the largest and broadest health faculties in the country, covering almost all specialties. Strengths lie in allied health, nursing and translational research, which is deeply embedded through partnerships with not-for-profits, service providers and the entire WA health system.
Through the health sciences, we discover new medical breakthroughs and develop our understanding of the mind and mental wellbeing. We make waves in crucial research, such as disease management, neurosciences, genomics, human movement and rehabilitation, and metabolic health.
