Fiona Stanley Hospital, Murdoch University and The University of Notre Dame Australia will make a series of jointly funded Professorial appointments in Medicine.
The first of these will be in Rehabilitation Medicine to coincide with the opening of the Rehabilitation Unit of the Fiona Stanley Hospital later this year. Others to follow for commencement early in 2015 are targeted in the areas of Neurology, Mental Health (acute perinatal care) and Geriatrics.
The proximity of Murdoch University to the hospitals and the proposed development of the 48 hectare mixed development Eastern Precinct site on Murdoch’s South Street Campus provides huge potential for the establishment of health services, large scale biomedical research, medical engineering and allied pharmaceutical production facilities all underpinned by teaching and research.
Health development investment on campus is anticipated to exceed $400m over the medium to long term. The establishment of world class facilities will attract inward investment, the best researchers and high quality jobs to WA.
