Postgraduate Research Co-ordinators

Each research discipline or unit at Sydney Medical School and in the Faculties of Dentistry and Pharmacy has at least one postgraduate co-ordinator. A postgraduate co-ordinator is an academic staff member that approves research degree applications and provides academic guidance and support to all the research students enrolled in a particular academic discipline.
