Conjoint Appointments

 

The Faculty of Health Science (FHS) from the University of Tasmania and DHHS have recognised the value and importance of developing a strong strategic partnership to improve health services provided to the community, and assist in addressing demands being placed on the health system in Tasmania. This joint strategic partnership between the two organisations is called Partners in Health.

A Conjoint Appointment means an employee will have responsibilities to both the DHHS and the FHS at the University of Tasmania.

Our organisations will jointly develop a close working relationship, specifically to maintain and develop the FHS, maintain and develop education and research, and co-ordinate and integrate teaching, research and clinical service delivery.
