Faculty of Medicine and Health Affiliates

Play your part in shaping the future of health in Australia and globally
Become an affiliate today. Our people are passionate and want to make a real difference in shaping the future of health in Australia and around the world. As an organisation we have a clear plan of what we want to achieve over the next five years, and our affiliates are an essential part of that plan.

What is an affiliate?

An affiliate is an individual, who is not a paid staff member (including casuals) of the University, but who is:

  •          appointed or engaged by the University to perform duties or functions, and/or;
  •          recognised for their contribution to the University (as per Affiliate Policy).

More Information

We want to be the university of choice for students who want to learn in an environment where people are committed to challenging conventional wisdom and leading new possibilities for disease prevention and care.

We want to have strong partnerships with our affiliates, industry, governments and other research institutions around the world so that we can reimagine the way healthcare and preventative strategies are delivered.

We want to be recognised as the university that is making and shaping the future of healthcare and creating real outcomes for the communities we serve.

As an affiliate, you will help us realise these goals.

You will be a part of the University of Sydney academic community through the valued affiliation title for an agreed period of time. Affiliates are attached to a School, Clinical School, Centre or Research Institute within FMH and partner closely with those schools to deliver on our student education and research priorities.

We consider that supporting and engaging with our affiliates is a very important part of developing that relationship.  It is important as an affiliate that you familiarise yourself with our policy and procedures to ensure you comply with the requirements and understand the nature of the affiliation. We also recognise that you have responsibilities to your hospitals and health providers, and we want to ensure that your relationship with the University of Sydney enhances these relationships.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the School, Centre or Medical Research Institute you wish to be affiliated with.

We look forward to having you as a part of our team as we contribute together to nurture and guide the health workers and researchers of the future.
