Flinders Medical Centre has an international reputation for research. A teaching hospital co-located with a university brings the opportunity for hospital and university staff to work together and ensures that patients benefit from the latest developments in research.
The integration of patient care, teaching and research is central to the ethos of Flinders Medical Centre and is the cornerstone of its success.
The Faculty of Health Sciences brings together researchers from the biomedical and clinical sciences at Flinders Medical Centre, Flinders University and Repatriation General Hospital.

Studying the effects of new treatments and medications using clinical trials occurs throughout the hospital in areas like cardiology, critical care and surgical units. Patients may be asked if they would like to participate in a research study. All projects must be approved by the Flinders Clinical Research Ethics Committee, and patients are fully briefed and asked to sign a consent form before enrolling in a study.
Support for research at Flinders Medical Centre is provided through the Flinders Medical Centre Foundation, which raises and distributes funds to assist projects. A media campaign to fundraise for research was launched in early 2008. Your donation, no matter how small, will help make a difference.
