WHAT WE DO
At the Baird Institute, we seek to improve patient care and survival in a number of ways …
Focus on Patients
The most important part of our work as surgeons, physicians and nurses is to identify real problems experienced every day by real patients. We then design relevant research programs to answer specific patient problems.
Focus on Education & Training
The Baird Institute believes there is an enormous potential in the computer age to develop techniques that will teach our surgeons to operate and think without having to “practise” initially on someone’s mother or father, son or daughter.
The Baird Institute has an integral link with the team of surgeons in the Cardiothoracic Department at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital and we are committed to providing support for research carried out there.
