Dr. Amany Abdelkader

Lecturer, Healthcare

Nursing - Leadership



Berwick Campus, Online


Dr Amany Abdelkader has worked in the School of Health at Federation University Australia’s Berwick Campus since 2018 as a Lecturer in anatomy and physiology. Dr Abdelkader is passionate about imparting her vast experience and knowledge in these areas to her future nursing cohort.

With 25 publications, more recently Amany’s research interests lie in the improvement of anatomy and physiology delivery modes to first-year undergraduate students, investigating the impact of the current COVID-19 pandemic on students studying purely online with no face-to-face component. Amany is recognised as an innovator in online delivery of material in her area.

Amany completed her PhD in 2002, with her research focusing on the role of the renal sympathetic nerves in the development and maintenance of hypertension published in the Journal of Hypertension. She completed her postdoctoral training at Monash University, investigating recovery of the kidney following ischemia reperfusion injury.
