the big picture - Health Sciences

Staff and students in the Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Sydney lead research into health and wellbeing. We are committed to solving critical health problems by discovering new ways of tackling society’s biggest challenges, influencing health policy by transformative thinking, and identifying new models of healthcare delivery.


We do this through multidisciplinary and collaborative research, partnering with local and global organisations, and working closely with people and communities to identify solutions that directly translate to health benefits.


As part of our research strategy, the Faculty of Health Sciences attracts high quality research students, at both the master’s and PhD level. We are committed to providing our students with a positive and comprehensive experience in a supportive, engaged and high quality research environment.

Areas of research strength

The Faculty of Health Sciences has prioritised a number of cross-cutting research themes that reflect the strength, diversity and depth of our research. This structure enables us to be responsive to changes in the health and medical research landscape, and rapidly address societal, industry, government and global priorities.





Our Research Theme Leaders engage with key stakeholders across the University, nationally and internationally to ensure our research discoveries have the greatest impact to benefit society.
