College of Medicine and Dentistry

The College of Medicine and Dentistry delivers courses and research relevant to people and communities in the tropics, dedicating its energy to rural, remote, tropical, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander populations. A strong focus on social justice and humanitarian issues underpins our work.

Led by Professor Richard Murray, these activities and functions are centrally coordinated through the Office of the Dean and Academic Services. The College is a part of the Division of Tropical Health and Medicine.
