The Women’s is committed to improving the health and wellbeing of women and newborns through its internationally recognised research and innovation. We have a distinguished track record in medical research, and this is reflected by the breadth of our programs.

Covering the full spectrum of our work are our 10 research centres: newborn, infectious diseases, gynaecology, cancer, pregnancy, mental health, midwifery and maternity services, allied health, anaesthetics and family violence prevention.

We annually conduct in excess of 60 clinical trials involving more than 3,000 patients and produce almost 300 publications.

As a tertiary-level hospital and one of Australia’s major teaching hospitals for graduates and postgraduates in medicine, nursing, midwifery and other health professions, the Women’s provides a clinical environment where scientists and health professionals can work together as innovative leaders in translational research. Our partnerships with international hospitals and research centres assist us to deliver world-class health care for women and newborns and ensures our model of care is at the forefront of modern clinical practice.

Our ongoing challenge is to provide an environment where excellence can flourish and our brightest and best researchers can undertake cutting edge studies aimed at improving the health and wellbeing of not only our patients, but all people.
