Engage with us

The academy draws on its natural synergy between three schools: School of Nursing, Midwifery and Social Sciences (SNMSS); School of Health, Medical and Applied Sciences (SHMAS) and School of Business and Law (SBL) to provide a world-class experience in health workforce research. Learners pursuing this area of research have the advantage of working alongside world-renowned researchers, supervisors, mentors and international collaborators with health workforce expertise in cutting-edge methodology, innovative research designs, pedagogy and theoretical conceptualisation.

The mechanisms of support offered through this academy aims to enhance the applied research capabilities of higher degree candidates, enabling them to develop agility and resilience in health workforce research. We foster industry, community, national and international research collaborations to develop sustained research capacity.

Our industry partners and collaborators play a key role in co-designing the health workforce agenda and progressive pedagogy to enhance learning and adaptive research skills. The academy welcomes learners who want to be the catalyst for change and encourages potential national and international collaborators to partner with us in building the research capability for the health workforce.
