RMIT University (officially the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology) is an Australian public university located in Melbourne, Australia. RMIT University maintains three campuses in Victoria, Australia - City, Bundoora and Brunswick. It also operates a number of specialised "sites" - in metropolitan Melbourne and in rural Victoria.
RMIT Bundoora was established in 1995, and is an award-winning "country campus" of RMIT. It is RMIT's second oldest and second largest campus and is located in Bundoora, 20 km from the City campus. RMIT Bundoora is divided into two campuses by Plenty Road, known as East and West. The older West campus was the former site of the Phillip Institute of Technology, which amalgamated with RMIT in 1992. Unlike the urban RMIT City campus in Melbourne, the West campus is set in 42 ha of parklands and designed to be eco-friendly and sustainable.
While working there in the past I curated the Pathology Museum as part of my academic duties and I painted this mural which is still housed in the RMIT Pathology Museum on the Bundoora West Campus. The mural is a representation of the history of disease and its treatment through the ages and it shows important people and developments in disease and healing from ancient times to modern times. As well as being decorative, it stimulated the students to do some reading about the history of medicine.
