Supporting teaching and research in medicine and health

Based throughout NSW and with partners and affiliates around the globe, our facilities support a wide network of medicine and health students, teachers, clinicians and researchers across a range of disciplines.

Our locations

The majority of our courses are taught out of the University's Camperdown/Darlington campus, including medical sciences, medicine, pharmacy, dentistry, public health, and some health sciences programs.

Nursing is currently taught out of our Mallet Street Building (as well as at Westmead), located 10 minutes away from Camperdown. In 2020 the Sydney Nursing School will move to our Camperdown location in the new health building.

Located in Lidcombe, our Cumberland campus is home to students and researchers from the Faculty of Health Sciences. The campus is equipped with dedicated facilities including a health sciences library, specialised laboratories and equipment, health clinics and sports/recreational amenities.

In 2020, the Faculty of Health Sciences will join the Faculty of Medicine and Health and relocate to our Camperdown campus in the new health building.

Our Westmead campus, including its two clinical schools, is home to world-class teaching and research in medicine and health.  Students and researchers at Westmead can undertake study and research in dentistry, medicine, medical sciences, nursing and public health.

Singapore Institute of Management (SIM)

Offered through SIM in Singapore, Sydney Nursing School teaches a Bachelor of Nursing (Post-registration) designed for registered nurses in Singapore who wish to upgrade their qualification to a bachelor's level.

We're building the faculty's new Health Precinct, the Susan Wakil Health Building, which will for the first time bring together multiple health disciplines to work out of the same precinct.

Sydney Nursing School and the Faculty of Health Sciences will move from the current Mallet St building and Cumberland campus respectively, along with components of Sydney Medical School, Sydney Pharmacy School and Sydney Dental School.

The building has been designed to be agile for multidisciplinary teaching and learning across all health disciplines and a place of collaborative research. It will provide state of the art clinical simulation programs and a multi-service clinic, as well as flexible infrastructure that supports team-based research programs.
