Leadership in child health issues is being delivered through an extensive program of clinical services, a strong teaching focus and exciting research.

The close bond between Flinders University and adjoining Flinders Medical Centre allows a fully integrated teaching program for both medical students and postgraduate trainees.

It also enables the Department of Paediatrics and Child Health to pursue research in areas of national and international importance with a special focus on clinical outcomes.


"While we are currently relatively small as a research institute, our relationship with WCHRI and strengths in clinical research has placed us at the cutting edge of some key child health issues. Our intention is to build on this capacity."
