The Charles Perkins Centre Royal Prince Alfred Clinic


The Charles Perkins Centre Royal Prince Alfred Clinic (The CPC RPA Clinic) is a unique space within The University of Sydney’s Charles Perkins Centre (CPC) dedicated to specialised healthcare and associated clinical research into obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease and related areas.

The Model of Care of the department is to provide, collaborative and integrated care to both patients and participants in a distinctive environment, where the clinical expertise of some of Royal Prince Alfred Hospital and Sydney Local Health District clinicians are supported by the benefits of research and education through The University of Sydney.

All clinical activity within The CPC RPA Clinic falls under the governance of Royal Prince Alfred Hospital.

The research mission of the CPC aligned with the vision of Sydney Local Health District ‘To achieve excellence in healthcare for all', provides both researchers and clinicians a clear path to translating their achievements in clinical research, into improvements in direct patient care over time.
