A combined response has been issued from Vice Chancellor Professor Peter Lee and Dean of Health and Head of the School of Health and Human Sciences Professor Iain Graham to the recent requests and attacks by Friends of Science in Medicine.
Excerpts from release:
“The rigour of our teaching, the qualifications of our staff and the quality of our graduates are the best defence against such generalised condemnation of a field in which we have set the highest standards,” Professor Lee said.
“The Australian public are actively seeking these types of treatments, therefore we take seriously our commitment to provide appropriate education in areas of real community need.
Of course you need evidence, both empirical and experience, to justify any practices and we welcome any scrutiny of education practices,” Professor Graham said.
