The Division of Health Sciences offers a dynamic research environment across biomedical, pharmaceutical, clinical, population health, and health policy and practice investigations.
Under the University’s transformed PhD program, the School of Nursing and Midwifery offers a structured program to small groups (2-5) international candidates who meet the University’s entry criteria for PhD study.
The School of Nursing and Midwifery at UniSA has a substantial program of research that investigates issues related to clinical practice, health and teaching and learning. Much of this research is undertaken in conjunction with a range of different industry partners and with a multidisciplinary group of research collaborators.
The School has four broad areas of research interest addressing nursing, mental health, midwifery and family health and education. The School has a multidisciplinary cohort of research students undertaking a broad range of research. The output from these students constitutes an important component of the research output of the School.
