Monash Health and Monash University’s School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine (SPHPM) have established a Biostatistical Consulting Service for Monash Health clinical staff and postgraduate students enrolled within SPHPM. The provision of biostatistical support to staff of Monash Health is part of the mutual benefits of our co-location within the Monash Health Translation Precinct based at Monash Medical Centre, Clayton.

All clinical staff employed by Monash Health at any campus of Monash Health are eligible to access the Biostatistical Consulting service at no cost for the initial consultation*.

The Biostatistical Consulting Service will provide support in three main areas in the development, execution and reporting of clinical research studies and clinical audits:

  • General advice on study design and grant writing
  • Advice on statistical rigour and sample size
  • Assistance with statistical analysis.

To organise an initial consultation, the application form needs to be completed and co-signed by the relevant supervisor or Research Director. The completed form should be emailed to
