The Health Hub centralises services common to current and prospective students across the schools of the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences.
The Student Experience team is the face of the Health Hub. We are here to help you with research pathways advising, transition into first year undergraduate degrees, pre-placement compliance and more! We work alongside the Faculty’s Admissions, Research Higher Degree and Experiential Learning teams to give you the most up-to-date information on all things MDHS!
Our Student Experience team is divided in two main areas:
Our Student Support Officers can help you with:
Research Pathways Advice
Nobody knows MDHS Honours and graduate research entry requirements better than the Health Hub. Talk to us about your research study plans early and we can help you stay on track to achieve your goals. Besides Biomedicine and Psychology Honours, we advise on the Master of Biomedical Science and major graduate research programs such as the Doctor of Philosophy and the Master of Philosophy.
Specialist Cohort Support
At the Health Hub, we support Chancellor’s Scholars students and have a dedicated Indigenous Student Support Officer on the team. We are well versed in graduate entry requirements for your cohorts and initiatives for current students.
Student Society Enrichment
One of the things we love to do is enrich student experience. We often do this by facilitating academic enrichment and social events run by your student societies. Study/life balance is important so get involved!
Student Life in the Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences consists of the Melbourne Peer Mentor Program and Academic Advising at Melbourne. These programs give you access to social and academic connections, to ease the transition to University life and provide guidance and support in your journey at the University of Melbourne.
Professor Jane Gunn, Dean, Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences provides a welcome to the faculty.
