EMCA Advisory Committee

The Melbourne Medical School (MMS) Early and Mid Career Academics (MMS EMCA) Advisory Committee is an advisory committee of the MMS Research and Research Training (R&RT) Committee.

With representation from all MMS departments, the committee champions initiatives to support the research and career development of MMS EMCAs and provides a platform for EMCAs to voice their needs and preferences around research activities. The committee links early and mid-career academics across MMS Departments and precincts with the wider Faculty ECA network.
