Abstract

The University of Notre Dame Australia’s Sydney Campus welcomed its first cohort of medical students this week. 112 foundation students commenced the graduate entry program in the University’s new state-of-the-art facilities which have been purpose built for its Medicine and Nursing schools in Darlinghurst, located directly opposite St Vincent’s Hospital.

The Sydney school which has been fully accredited by the Australian Medical Council, will operate in association with St Vincent’s Hospital and other major Catholic and public hospitals in New South Wales and Victoria. Students will have the benefit of accessing clinical training places in regional areas.

Vice Chancellor, Dr Peter Tannock said, “This was a great day for the students and their families and for this new university in Sydney. The Darlinghurst Campus was a beautiful and historic facility which would do much to enhance the quality of the medical education to be provided by the University.”
