Changing lives in Canberra
Students and staff from the ANU College of Health & Medicine deliver the highest standard of professional healthcare services to the Canberra community through the ANU Psychology clinic and our health partnerships.

Changing lives across Australia
In addition to Canberra, our medicine students have the opportunity to undergo clinical placements at the Sydney Adventist Hospital (The San), and in rural and Indigenous communities around Australia where they can also conduct research projects with a direct benefit to the communities they’re in.
ANU works closely with many Federal Government departments and agencies to advice on and influence health development policy.
Our psychology researchers have also contributed to programs to promote social inclusion by working closely with the Department of Social Services.
Our collaborative partnership with HealthANSWERS (ACT and NSW Education, Research and Service) enables us to come together to address pressing challenges in regional health care, ensure quality of care across diverse and isolated settings and build and maintain a sustainable workforce.
Changing lives around the world
Our epidemiologists often provide assistance to humanitarian crises in developing countries. For example, Dr Kamalini Lukuge worked in Ebola-affected areas in Africa and conducted research on how to better manage future outbreaks.
In the field of mental health, the MoodGYM e-health platform developed by our National Institute for Mental Health Research is now one of the most important online mental health tools in the world, delivering support to over one million people from more than 200 countries.
