The Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology sits within the School of Clinical Sciences in the FMNHS. We are an academic clinical department where our clinical academics work at Monash Health and the clinicians at Monash Health are adjuncts within the Department. We closely collaborate with many Departments within the school with an especially close relationship with the Department of Paediatrics. Many of our researchers sit within The Ritchie Centre as do the researchers in the Ritchie Centre and the Hudson Institute of Medical Research. The Department history is steeped in IVF research and this continues with the collaboration we have with other IVF providers.
