We love what we do – and are proud to tell you why! Working for a not-for-profit medical research institute with inspiring leadership and a mission of zero deaths from melanoma, provides immense job satisfaction.

Our corporate values of Collegiality, Achievement, Respect and Excellence (C.A.R.E) underpin everything we do. Our team also has access to NFP salary sacrificing and a great work life balance. But above all, we love that every day when we come to work we are helping make a difference to the lives of others. And that’s immeasurable.

These Fellowships offer an outstanding opportunity for high-level training in medical oncology, melanoma surgical oncology, breast and surgical oncology, melanoma pathology, and dermatology.


MIA’s Elective/Observership Program provides a unique educational opportunity for clinicians and medical students to observe the multidisciplinary best practice care offered at MIA.

Successful candidates will focus on a clinical discipline of interest while also attending the multidisciplinary clinics at MIA’s world-class research and treatment centre, and affiliated hospitals, to observe the integrated management of melanoma patients.


As a not for profit research institute, we appreciate the generosity of not only our donors and corporate partners, but also our volunteers. These may be patients, their families, work places or community groups who all want to help make a difference.
