Mayor pays tribute to community support for #OperationMedSchool

While there are many questions still unanswered as to whether the promised medical school at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital will go ahead, Sunshine Coast Council Mayor Mark Jamieson has paid tribute to the support council received from the community earlier this year in sending a message to the Federal Government on the importance of securing the required medical school places.

Earlier today (April 27), Assistant Health Minister David Gillespie and Federal Members Andrew Wallace and Ted O’Brien announced that the Commonwealth would collaboratively support 50 students to facilitate the establishment of a full medical school on the Sunshine Coast.

However, Griffith University has now confirmed no additional Commonwealth supported places have been offered to support a four year medical school program at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital at this time and that it will need to recruit full fee paying international students to ensure the additional 15 required places are funded.
