EnCouRage is the Faculty of Medicine, Health and Human Sciences Early Career Researcher Network
The aim of the EnCouRage network is to drive and coordinate programs and initiatives that support early career researchers (ECRs). We aim to provide opportunities for cross-departmental networking, collaborations, and career development for ECRs, including post-docs and other research-active staff.
The EnCouRage network was initiated in the Department of Biomedical Sciences within the Faculty of Medicine, Health and Human Sciences (previously Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences) and now integrates all eight Departments within the Faculty: Biomedical Sciences, Cognitive Sciences, Psychology, Clinical Medicine, Psychology, Health Systems and Populations, Health Profession, and the Australian Institute of Health Innovation.
