Iain Graham, Professor of Healthcare Development, is the current Dean and Head of School for Health and Human Sciences. He is also the Director of Clinical Services overseeing the University Health Clinic.

Professor Graham has been in this role since April 2007. Prior to this appointment, Iain was the Dean of Health at the Institute of Health and Community Studies, and Professor of Nursing, at Bournemouth University, UK.

Iains role is to lead the evolution of the School at Southern Cross University, and position it so that the School can meet the major changes, and challenges, expected in the 21st Century for both the Health Service and Higher Education as it pertains to the health professions.

It should be noted that every health care system in the world, and by inference, every University which hosts a Nursing, Allied Health or Medical School, is facing reform and change. The worlds demographic and epidemiological profile is moving. Consumer expectation is rising, and every government seeks to provide a cost effective, quality based, and safe health care system. Therefore, Professor Graham is positioning the School so that it can work with such change, and re-position itself for an exciting future. Iains motto is: Be strong locally in order to be heard internationally.
