Discipline of Medicine

Discipline of Medicine

The Discipline of Medicine is the Sydney Medical School's largest clinical discipline and its diversity of staffing expertise gives the Discipline of Medicine the capacity to fulfill its mission of maintaining the highest standards of teaching and research and promoting knowledge in medicine, for the better care of the sick. The Discipline is a co-operative federation of multiple overlapping clinical specialties, often referred to as internal medicine.

Most of the functions of the Discipline of Medicine have now devolved to the Clinical Schools, based in each of the major teaching hospitals which have University of Sydney campuses - primarily at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, Concord Hospital, Royal North Shore Hospital, Westmead Hospital and Nepean Hospital in Sydney. However, members of the Discipline still have major responsibilities for the content and standards of medical education and assessment in each of the clinical disciplines.
