International Partnerships

Working to improve global health and well-being
We build strong collegial national and international partnerships to enhance global well-being and internationalise our teaching and research, promoting healthier lives worldwide.

About us

At the University of Sydney's Faculty of Medicine and Health, we are dedicated to fostering global collaboration and partnerships to drive positive change in healthcare and advance international outcomes.

We are guided by our strategic plan and committed to strengthening global networks and collaborations to improve healthcare and health outcomes worldwide. We believe in the power of international partnerships to create innovative solutions and make a lasting impact on global health. 

Some of the partners that we work with include:

  • universities or research institutes outside Australia who are interested in research collaboration
  • non-governmental organisations interested in collaboration
  • postdoctoral researchers interested in a visiting fellowship
  • university or government bodies outside Australia wishing to organise a delegation to the University.

Our strategic objectives

We will build a network of focused partnerships in priority countries with specific institutions, government bodies, companies and not-for-profit organisations to underpin our research and education objectives.

We will increase the impact of our international collaborations by prioritising sustainable relationships that address multiple facets of our engagement activities: research, funding, recruitment, mobility, diplomacy, consultancy and industry engagement.

We will increase the value of international research funding and diversify international funding sources.

We will leverage funding opportunities that allow the faculty to lead research partnerships and capacity sharing in Low and Middle Income Countries (LMICs), particularly in our region.

We will foster researcher-to-researcher connections between FMH researchers and their counterparts at partner institutions, to create a pipeline of publications and joint research, and we will support individual researchers wanting to engage with international partners and funding bodies.

We will create a sustainable revenue stream by identifying and pursuing financially viable opportunities for professional education in priority countries.

We will identify and pursue research and development funding and collaboration opportunities with the private sector internationally.

We will lead and support strategic international engagement, providing expertise and advocacy for the faculty on international matters within the University and beyond.
