Our purpose

The Victorian Medtech Skills and Devices Hub (VMH) is a industry-partnering collaboration centre working to overcome the barriers limiting the growth of our state’s medical technology ecosystem.

We know from close collaboration with industry that one of the most significant barriers to development in Victorian Medtech is a lack of education and training on future skills in high demand by the sector.

An Australian-first medical technology hub, our mission is to foster the growth of businesses of all sizes across the sector, boosting Victoria’s Medtech workforce capability by building bespoke, industry-aligned education offerings to train students and career changers while upskilling professionals.

The VMH is supported by the Victorian Government’s Australian Medtech Manufacturing Centre (AMMC) and delivered by a consortium led by The University of Melbourne and including Swinburne University of Technology, RMIT University, and the Aikenhead Centre for Medical Discovery (ACMD).
