Support the School of Medicine
The School of Medicine is grateful for your commitment to our growth and development and seeks your continued support.
The School's mission is to provide excellence in medical education, research and scholarship with the aim of graduating doctors to serve in areas of unmet need, specifically in the country’s vast remote and rural areas.
The School of Medicine has achieved great success. This has been made possible with the support and encouragement from our community. Contributions from our donors, alumni, health partners, physicians and friends has been immeasurable. From physicians inviting students into their practices, patients allowing students to observe and donors providing generous and much needed scholarship and research funding and support we could not be more grateful.

Medical Students’ Assistance Fund
Medical Students’ Assistance Fund provides immediate and vital financial assistance to students who are experiencing unexpected hardship.
Students like Camilla: “Studying medicine is filled with its own stresses and having the unexpected financial hardship on top of that adds its own emotional burden. In receiving assistance, I was able to focus on my studies and to settle into my second year, without this added stress."
The Churack Chair of Chronic Pain
The Churack Chair of Chronic Pain reduces the impact of chronic pain in our community. This is being achieved through research and educating medical students to identify, manage and effectively treat chronic pain through specialised programs. This much-needed research and work is shaping the direction of chronic pain awareness and rehabilitation in Australia and throughout the world.
The Chair in Palliative Medicine Research
The Chair of Palliative Medicine investigates end-of-life care issues, facilitates a program of palliative care research, provides advocacy, and enhances clinical care. Notre Dame takes a competent, ethical, and compassionate approach to palliative medicine and care, and strives for excellence in its patient and family-centred approach. This much-needed research and work is improving the quality of palliative care service delivery in Australia and throughout the world.
