As an Australian leader in medical research and one of Australia’s great medical schools, there is no shortage of exciting projects that are in need of vital funds.

We are grateful to our supporters for their help in creating scholarships, supporting ground-breaking research and help transform and build better facilities for our researchers and students.

We differentiate ourselves from other leading Medical Schools with our research strengths in the neurosciences, ageing, mental health and addiction, cancer, immunology and virology, health innovation studies and our emerging strength in Indigenous health.

Your financial contributions of any size will directly help us achieve our vision of change through education.

Leave a Bequest

Leaving a gift to the Faculty of Medicine in your Will and a legacy for future generations is a very personal and extraordinary decision to make. There are many reasons why people choose to leave a bequest for future generations. No matter why a gift is given, each gift, whether large or small, makes a difference to students and researchers for many years to come. Your support could provide scholarships, research funding and improve educational facilities.

If you would like more information about leaving a gift in your Will, please contact us (contact details below).
