Health Workforce Academy

Connecting Professionals In Research

The Health Workforce Academy offers education and training that aims to enhance the applied research capabilities of higher degree candidates. We aim to share contemporary knowledge and innovative designs to upskill candidates and develop the vital skills to strengthen research performance.

We are responsive to candidate needs by providing a platform to facilitate researchers, supervisors, mentors, national and international collaborators with health workforce expertise to share cutting-edge methodology, innovative research designs, pedagogy and theoretical conceptualization to advance the learning of our higher degree research candidates.

The academy is unique in that we develop the natural synergy between numerous research areas with the unified goal of addressing contemporary health workforce issues.

HWA brings together research candidates from three schools including the School of Nursing, Midwifery and Social Sciences (SNMSS); the School of Health, Medical and Applied Sciences (SHMAS) and the School of Business and Law (SBL) to support their journey in advancing their health workforce research.

Students are supported to foster relationships with industry across acute, community, public and private sectors within Australia as well as through international academic partnerships.

The Health Workforce Academy welcomes learners who want to be the catalyst for change and encourages potential national and international collaborators to partner with them in building the research capability for the health workforce.
