Northern Health’s ability to provide quality health services to the northern community now, and into the future, requires a significant investment in training.

More qualified health professionals will be needed to meet the demand for health services as the northern community grows.

The Northern Centre for Health Education and Research (NCHER) is a partnership between Northern Health, the University of Melbourne, La Trobe University and the State and Commonwealth Governments.

Completed for the start of the 2015 academic year, the NCHER will enable us to train an additional 900+ health professionals. Our aim is to build an innovative NCHER of the highest quality that will attract doctors, nurses and allied health staff who come to learn, and choose to stay within the northern community.

The NCHER will advance collaborative research with translational focused on outcomes for the northern community. The research that will be undertaken at the NCHER facilities will bring lasting benefits to the northern community, as medical conditions directly affecting the local population are investigated and addressed by researchers working locally.

An additional $5 million is required to complete the fit out of the third floor, which will incorporate expanded and improved Northern Health library facilities, providing easy access for students and clinicians alike.
