School of Medicine


Discipline Lead | Annemarie Hennessy

The discipline of Medicine at Western Sydney University encompasses and connects researchers engaged in exploring the human experience of health, injury and disease.

We seek to understand the mechanisms of the human body, and how these inform an understanding of the experience of people with different diseases and conditions in order to inform diagnosis, prevention or future clinical care. The study of neuroscience for instance informs knowledge about the human mind and nervous system, which is central to understanding a range of physical and mental health challenges.

Clinical research then occurs when our researchers engage with patients and their health experiences. Drawing together the science and art of medical practice, the iterative nature of the clinical care of your patient and complex research questions emerge. Across the span of human life, our researchers are always aiming to improve the outcomes for their next patient.

Medicine is about people.
