With the University of Adelaide’s new all-in-one medical facility now open, the State can boast one of the most sophisticated education, research and training facilities in the region.
The state-of-the-art Adelaide Health and Medical Sciences Building brings together the very latest hi-tech facilities for the benefit of students, staff, researchers and the entire community.
Everything about the building is on a grand scale, including the $246 million dollar investment required to see the game-changing facility come to life. The Commonwealth Government recognised the need to inject $60 million into the facility. Located next to the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute and the Royal Adelaide Hospital, the addition of this building has created one of the largest and most comprehensive biomedical precincts in the southern hemisphere.
As the most advanced healthcare teaching facility in the region, the facility is set to become the epicentre of innovation and discovery - offering students the perfect blend of theory, tutoring and hands-on practical experience.
The 14 storey campus building will accommodate:
- up to 1600 medicine, nursing and dentistry students at a time
- more than 400 health science researchers
- four floors of research laboratories
- hi-tech medical simulation facilities – including virtual wards and operating theatres
- lecture theatres and over 150 classrooms
- a $58 million Adelaide Dental Hospital (opening July 2017).
