The School of Health Sciences trains the graduates of tomorrow in a contemporary environment that is stimulating and adaptable to a rapidly changing world. Our teaching programs are inherently interdisciplinary and cover a wide range of professional and other disciplines in clinical and non-clinical health sciences and sports-related disciplines. These areas are underpinned by a strong emphasis on research and research-led teaching, which involves partnerships with a range of external organisations. Our programs include undergraduate degrees, honors degrees, master’s programs, and graduate-level research programs (master’s and doctoral). All health science programs combine strong interprofessional health skills common to all health science professionals with the practice of a specialty discipline.
Our podiatry program is an accredited 4-year undergraduate program (with an integrated honors program option) and is well established and enjoys a strong national reputation. Specifically, the discipline of podiatry has strong collaborations with clinical providers (both public and private) and we benefit from our associations (teaching and research) with the community of Western Sydney and beyond.
