The University of Newcastle’s Central Coast Clinical School will be a nation-leading medical, nursing and midwifery teaching and education facility, operating alongside the Central Coast Research Institute.
Together these facilities will focus on integrated healthcare, research and innovation in addressing the health needs of the local population.
The future of health education and clinical research
The University's long-standing reputation for excellence in clinical healthcare education will be further strengthened by the School’s location within the Gosford Hospital’s Health and Wellbeing Precinct.
The Clinical School and the Research Institute will boost the University’s links with the local health sector. In partnership with the Central Coast Local Health District, the Clinical School and Research Institute will produce medical, nursing and allied health practitioners who have trained in real hospital settings, alongside leading clinical practitioners and medical experts.
Clinical School spaces incorporate state-of-the-art clinical teaching facilities, tutorial rooms and individual and group study spaces. Students studying at the Clinical School will have access to the wide range of services and support providing by the University. This includes on-campus student information and advice, dedicated indigenous support centre, library, individual and collaborative study spaces, recreational spaces and activities, student kitchen, parenting room and access to food outlets.
