Strong demand for the Dubbo medical program
The construction of the new facilities of the School of Rural Health is in its final phase, the infrastructure and audiovisual furniture being installed in the new teaching spaces.
The new facilities include an advanced anatomy teaching laboratory, simulated clinical environments, various learning and recreational spaces. These will complement existing on-site facilities, including student accommodation, outdoor gym, swimming pool and tennis court.
The capital works, overseen by Patterson Building Group, are expected to be completed by the end of the year. Local landscapers will then be brought in to complete the surrounding land.
In consultation with our local community, Indigenous designs and themes, including artwork commissioned by Cara Shields, were used in the internal and external areas of the new buildings and teaching offices.
Professor Mark Arnold said the school plans to hold open houses for the local community to view the new facilities, with dates to be announced once lockdown orders are lifted.
âWe look forward to inviting the Dubbo community to view the new facilities and discuss how the new spaces can support further collaboration with our local community,â said Professor Mark Arnold, Principal of the School. Sydney rural clinic in Dubbo.
