Research at Monash Children's Hospital
The program employs 90 senior medical staff and 38 hospital medical officers attending the paediatric wards and emergency department. In conjunction with the Royal Children’s Hospital we deliver statewide initiatives including the Paediatric Integrated Cancer Service (PICS), Paediatric Rehabilitation Centre, and the Victorian Forensic Paediatric Medical Service (VFPMS).
Southern Health is unique in having both obstetric and paediatric departments on the one site at Monash Medical Centre Clayton providing a holistic approach to care and research.
