Recognising our hospital partners

August and September, 2012

The 150th anniversary of the Melbourne Medical School provided a wonderful opportunity to recognise the outstanding achievements of the School’s students, staff, distinguished alumni and friends. 

The Melbourne Medical School is renowned for global leadership in health research, policy and practice.  This would not be possible without the School’s long standing relationships with many of Melbourne and Victoria’s leading hospitals and research institutes.
 
In August and September, Head of the Melbourne Medical School Professor James Best presented certificates of appreciation to a number of these valued partner institutes as part of the School’s 150th anniversary celebrations. 
 
Ceremonies took place at a number of partner institutes in August and September, including:
 
Northern Health
Melbourne Health
St Vincent’s Health
Western Health
Mercy Health
Epworth HealthCare
Goulburn Valley Health
Royal Children’s Hospital
Royal Women’s Hospital
Austin Health
 
These partnerships and collaborations provide students with valuable clinical training opportunities and access to outstanding facilities. They are an integral part of the Melbourne Medical School’s development and have a significant impact on teaching, learning, research and clinical practice.
