What’s so great about the Macquarie University Hospital?

A hospital is a hospital, right? Well, not quite. Let us explain.

Along with the amazing—and paid for—clinical year in Hyderabad, India, MD students will also spend much of their time at the Macquarie University Hospital, which is Australia’s most technologically advanced private hospital on a university campus. The hospital is co-located with the Australian School of Advanced Medicine and also houses medical services for students and staff. The Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences at Macquarie University is the fifth and newest faculty formed in 2014. It is also the only medical faculty in Australia to be linked to a not-for-profit private teaching hospital on its campus.

Macquarie University Hospital is a new, world-class medical facility revolutionising the Australian medical scene. With 187 beds, 16 operating theatres and state of the art equipment, Macquarie University Hospital attracts the best medical personnel and delivers an exceptional level of patient care.

With 152 beds, 12 operating theatres and clinics in radiology, pathology, radiotherapy and oncology, the hospital provides services across a broad range of specialties.

To learn – Expert doctors at Macquarie University Hospital not only deliver the best care to patients, but also educate other doctors, passing on their valuable knowledge and experience. Many leading specialists teach at the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, which is located next to the hospital and facilitates the learning of the next generation of specialists—MD and DPT students!

To discover – Medical treatments are constantly evolving. Macquarie University Hospital staff are committed to a process of improvement and advancement. Macquarie doctors not only use and teach the latest medical and surgical techniques, but also conduct research to discover better therapies, so that they can continue to deliver the most effective treatments. To do this, Macquarie University Hospital and the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences work together to conduct research into best clinical practice. Much of their research is based on the concept of “translational research,” a process of adapting scientific discoveries to become practical improvements in patient care at the bedside.
