A message from the Dean

Monash Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences is pioneering innovations, treatments and therapies that improve human health. We are a leading provider of healthcare education in Australia, and are passionate about building the medical workforce of the future globally.

We are proud of our staff who are at the forefront of innovation and ground-breaking research and teaching, often fulfilling the role of academic and clinician at the same time. Their goal is not only to educate and train the next generation of world-class health professionals, but also to inspire them to become leaders that educate and mentor others in their professorial fields.

The annual Excellence Awards is an opportunity to recognise and celebrate the achievements of our staff, and some of our best and brightest students for their outstanding performance in the previous year. All our recipients are working towards our shared vision of improving the human condition.

Congratulations to all the award winners. I applaud your dedication and hard work, and I encourage you to keep asking questions in your quest for better health outcomes.

I also know that for many of you, your achievements are underpinned by the strong support from family, friends and colleagues.

The COVID-19 pandemic has meant changes to the way we do many things, and the awards presentation is no exception.

Professor Christina Mitchell AO

Under normal circumstances, we would have celebrated our staff and student achievements face-to-face. Instead, I invite you to explore the content on this website, including video interviews with our staff award recipients.

While we may not know what lies ahead, we do know that your hard work and dedication will have prepared you for whatever the future will hold.

Please stay safe.
