Director’s welcome

At the ANU School of Medicine and Psychology we recognise that the journey of life is intricately woven with the dynamic interplay between our minds and bodies. It's this symbiotic relationship that lies at the heart of understanding and enhancing human health.

That's why we're proud pioneers, breaking new ground as the first university in Australia – and among the first worldwide – to integrate the disciplines of medicine and psychology. We're tearing down the barriers between disciplines to pioneer innovative health solutions through collaborative, inter- and trans-disciplinary research, education, and practice.

Our mission? To unlock the mysteries of the mind and body, create transformative therapeutic breakthroughs, tackle pressing national and global health challenges, and champion societal changes that elevate overall well-being.

Join us in the exploration and innovation. Reach out today and embark on a journey to shape a healthier, brighter future together.
