Personal profile


Dr Sarkies is currently seeking PhD and Masters of Research students across several funded improvement and implementation science programs of research:

  • Hip fracture, frailty and aging
  • Cardiovascular genetics, lipidology, and familial hypercholesterolaemia
  • Translating research evidence into practice for allied health, nursing, and medical professions
  • Health professional workforce challenges
  • Electronic and telehealth service provision
  • Healthcare resilience in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Dr Mitchell Sarkies is an NHMRC Emerging Leadership Fellow at the Australian Institute of Health Innovation, Macquarie University. Dr Sarkies has a clinical background in physiotherapy and is internationally recognised for their expertise in health services research and implementation science. Their research has had extensive impact on implementation science, healthcare organisation and management, policy decision making, large-system transformation, value-based healthcare, and hospital avoidance programs for chronic conditions. He leads multiple programs of research harnessing implementation science and complexity science to enhance evidence-informed models of care for hip fracture, improve the detection and management of lipid disorders in cardiovascular medicine, and scale-up value-based healthcare initiatives for people with chronic conditions in partnership with NSW Health. Dr Sarkies has developed large-system implementation models for value-based healthcare initiatives using realist methods, as well as developing and applying novel trial designs, such as a helix counterbalanced RCT for the simultaneous evaluation of multiple research implementation strategies across different contexts. He holds a Bachelor of Applied Science (Physiotherapy) from the University of Sydney and a PhD from Monash University. His research has had direct impact on clinical practice and health outcomes, such as reduced hospital length of stay from hospital weekend allied health service models, and improved clinician knowledge in the prevention of inpatient falls and management of deep vein thrombosis. The impact of his research is also demonstrated through healthcare policy changes, where he led the implementation of evidence-informed recommendations for weekend allied health services through the Evidence Translation in Allied Health (EviTAH) consortium in a large international study across 132 hospitals.
