What is a teaching hospital?


A public tertiary teaching hospital has highly trained specialised staff, equipment and services able to safely care for patients with the most complex or life-threatening conditions. Public tertiary teaching hospitals also train large numbers of staff and students and have significant health and medical research programs.

Visit the Sunshine Coast Health Institute page for information about how the Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service will partner with leading health education providers to expand the health training, education and research facilities on the Sunshine Coast.
