The construction of the Adelaide Health and Medical Sciences building (AHMS) is on schedule and construction is now at a stage where it is possible to take regular groups of people on a tour of the site. Tours will be run from 3:30-4:30pm each weekday throughout the month of May and each tour will be limited to 20 people.

Book now

Each of the tours involves taking the builder’s lift to Level 5 and then walking down through the building. Note the builder’s lift is an external lift attached to the side of the building. This is a working building site and full accessibility is not yet available, therefore you need to be physically able to walk down and up stairs, over stiles and around potential hazards.

Some important points you need to be aware of when deciding to take a tour:

  1. You will have to make your own way to and from the site. Please note there is no car parking onsite. Walk, tram, bus along North Terrace are all options.
  2. You must be punctual, if you miss the start of the tour you will not be able to join it part way through – this is for safety reasons as each tour is accompanied by a certified operator and we don’t want to shorten the tour waiting for latecomers.
  3. You will be provided with personal protective equipment to be worn for the duration of the tour, including safety boots, so please bring socks. You should also wear clothing that covers exposed limbs, e.g. long sleeves and long trousers/jeans.
  4. No photos are to be taken on the site, as part of our agreement with the building contractors.
  5. All tours are subject to any last minute direction from the builder and the prevailing weather. This is to ensure your safety and avoid any compromise to the building schedule. Any changes to a tour will be advised as soon as they are known.


If you are unable to attend the site tours, view the live webcam to watch the building progress.

The Menzies Foundation is looking for outstanding researchers with potential to be the next generation of leaders in Allied Health.

The tax-free scholarship is offered over one or two years at $40,000 per year with a total value of up to $80,000.  It is open to outstanding Allied Health researchers studying at an Australian university who have completed the first stage of their PhD.

To be eligible, applicants must be researching in one of the following non-medical evidence-based allied health disciplines: audiology, dietetics, exercise physiology, nutrition, occupational therapy, optometry, orthoptics, physiotherapy, podiatry, psychology, social work, and speech pathology.

We are looking for applicants who not only demonstrate academic excellence, but who are future leaders. We expect our applicants will represent the Menzies’ ethos of being the best you can be, no matter where you start; taking risks, inspiring others and being willing to work hard. In addition, we’re looking for researchers who are likely to make a contribution to the further development of the allied health sciences in Australia and who will use their leadership, knowledge and skills for the benefit of others.

Applications are now open and close on 30 June 2016.

The funds can be used for a wide range of purposes, from equipment and conference attendance to living expenses. In addition, the successful applicant is eligible to apply for a further $25,000 early career grant aimed at developing their research project in the first four years of their post-doctoral career.
