160 medical students from Bond and Griffith Universities are set to trial the new lecture room facilities for the first time at the Gold Coast University Hospital.
“In previous years we have had to run several orientation groups in different facilities at different times which did provide some challenges, so we are very excited about housing all 160 students in the one room at the one time,“ Gold Coast Health Service Medical Student Coordinator, Ms Christine Sly said.
“Being able to host medical students from two universities concurrently for their hospital orientation is testament to our strong partnership with our local universities for the delivery of quality medical education on the Gold Coast.”
