There are many ways to be involved with The Royal Melbourne!
Corpus Medicorum was founded in 2002 by Royal Melbourne Hospital cardiothoracic surgeon and violist Phillip Antippa. Inspired by the Australian Doctors Orchestra, Corpus Medicorum is comprised of doctors, medical students and other health professionals who play together to continue a fine tradition of regular music performance combined with raising funds for Lung Cancer Services at the Royal Melbourne Hospital.

Each year at Christmas time the RMH Online Auction brings over 10,000 staff, their family and friends together to raise money for essential equipment and patient-care items that the hospital would otherwise be unable to fund. The Foundation asks local businesses, big and small, to donate in the form of products or gift cards which then go onto an online platform where participants can view and bid on these items. When the bidding frenzy begins, the generosity of our audience combined with a bit of friendly competition makes for an incredibly fun and gratifying experience.
It's with these funds that the Foundation are then able to reward the hardworking teams across all Royal Melbourne Hospital sites. With last year's event raising over $20,000, we already can't wait to beat this figure when December comes around again.
Please contact us if you'd like to find out more about the online auction.
Our public lectures are free and raise awareness of medical advances and research at The Royal Melbourne Hospital. They are an opportunity for community education on prevention, treatment and cure of specific diseases and are delivered by leading medical professionals and researchers. For those wishing to contribute towards The Royal Melbourne Hospital there will be an opportunity for donations on the day.
All public lectures are held in The Royal Melbourne Hospital Function Centre, 300 Grattan Street, Parkville.
