The Faculty of Medicine’s Global Strategy aims to guide and support our goal to be the most globally connected biomedical and public health faculty in Australia. To fulfil this goal, we will rely on ‘International Champions’ across our academic and professional networks to lead our teaching, research and engagement efforts in priority regions.

These regions include North America, South East Asia, India, China, and our regional neighbours in the Pacific.
