Sister Program

The vision of the Sister Program is to identify and promote an exchange program that offers opportunities for medical students, medical graduates (at the junior and senior levels of training) and young researchers (PhD students and postdoctoral scientists) to access education, training and research opportunities as well as identifying and establishing joint research programs – with the shared goal of enhancing the international focus of each institution and most importantly improving child health on a global scale.


It is a partnership between

  • The Children's Hospital at Westmead, a teaching hospital of The University of Sydney - CHW (Australia)
  • Children's National Medical Centre - CNMC (United States) and
  • the Paediatric Department of The University Hospital of Padova (Italy)
