The College of Medicine and Public Health aspires to be a global leader in rural and remote health research and education through facilitating the development of an appropriately skilled rural health workforce. There is a longstanding partnership between the College and Flinders Medical Centre, and the College continues to develop partnerships with healthcare institutions throughout the Central Australian Corridor.

The College is now seeking to appoint the inaugural Dean (Rural and Remote Health) to lead and continue to grow the University’s work in delivering transformative education and healthcare to rural and remote communities in Australia.
