Victoria University (VU) and Western Health have been working together since the late 1980s.
In June 2016, a formal Strategic Partnership Agreement was signed by VU’s then Vice-Chancellor Professor Peter Dawkins and Western Health’s CEO, Associate Professor Alex Cockram.
Today, the longstanding relationship is a collaborative partnership that spans many different areas of both organisations. These include:
- joint research activities
- education and employment opportunities for VU students and Western Health staff
- development and operation of shared facilities for research and the public.
