About Conjoints

UNSW Medicine recognises and greatly values the contributions made to the teaching and research environment by so many people across such an array of affiliated organisations. The conferred Conjoint Title is one way for us to acknowledge this.
 
The Faculty seeks original thinking, diversity, collegiality, building new connections in research and education through our many networks and affiliated organisations.  As a leading Medical Faculty, our aim is to work together to create major advances in health, especially for individuals and communities in greatest need. By working with the best teachers and researchers, we are committed to training our students to become leaders in healthcare. 
 
A conferred Conjoint Title holder may contribute to undergraduate medical student teaching, student assessment and examinations, student mentoring, coursework and other teaching contributions, research collaboration, higher degree research supervision, research grant success and other activities forming the broader purpose of UNSW Medicine. 

Representing a mutually beneficial relationship, the conferral of a Conjoint Title represents official recognition and inclusion into the UNSW academic community, along with various other benefits and privileges.

Such titles are attached to a UNSW Medical Faculty School, Clinical School, Centre or Research Institute. They are considered on a merit basis and if approved will be valid for a defined period.
