recent Translational Research symposium
Professor Eric Morand, Head of Monash University’s School of Clinical Sciences at Monash Health observed we have improved our performance across all five performance pillars: teaching, research, citations, industry income, and international outlook. Professor Morand said the rankings rise reflected the University’s consistent focus on excellence in research and teaching, and international and industry engagement.
“The University recognises its education and research partnerships with its major teaching hospitals as an absolutely key component of its ongoing success in the world rankings.
“Both sides of this partnership not only contribute to this success, but ultimately benefit from it—virtue of the effect of rankings attracting better students who become the health professional staff of the teaching hospitals.”
Professor Stephen Jane, Head of Monash University’s Central Clinical School echoed Professor Morand’s comments, adding that the strength in investigator led clinical trials and translational bench to bedside research and education strongly underpinned the result.
