We aspire to meet the healthcare needs of an ageing population, reduce the burden of preventable chronic disease and deliver convenient and affordable health services while improving consumer engagement in healthcare.

As the University of Tasmania, we’re in a unique position. We are the only university in the state and as such, we benefit from close links with our community, our health system and our health professionals. It’s through these close links that we have built a lasting reputation in health professional education and translational research with a local, national and global impact.

Our footprint extends beyond Tasmania, we have had a presence in NSW since 2006. Our campus is located in Rozelle and offer nursing and paramedic education in partnership with local hospitals, health services and Ambulance NSW.  Our Rozelle campus also includes the Australian Institute of Health Service Management.
