Help Sunshine Coast University Hospital get a Medical School
Health is at the heart of strong communities and here on our Sunshine Coast, we are looking forward to the April opening of the State Government’s $1.87 billion tertiary teaching hospital at Kawana.
However, the way it is shaping up, our Sunshine Coast University Hospital will be the only tertiary teaching hospital in Australia without a medical school.
That’s because the Federal Government has not allocated the additional 15 medical student places required.
Without that allocation, the new hospital will only have a clinical school which teaches third and fourth year medical students.
Our community was promised a tertiary teaching hospital which has always been part of the planning and design.
We deserve nothing less and will accept nothing less.
