Centre for Rural and Remote Health Education

 

Project Status: Completed 2014

Clinicians and health students throughout the Mid-West, Goldfields and Pilbara now have access to state-of-the-art learning facilities at the new Education and Simulation Learning Centre, located at the Combined Universities Centre for Rural Health in Geraldton.

Officially opened in April 2014, the Centre is the result of a contribution of $1.17 million of Royalties for Regions investment through the Regional Development Council Action Agenda.

The funding included the construction and fit out of the new facility, which provides an innovative education and training space for health students and clinicians and have the capability of linking the Mid-West, Goldfields and Pilbara through rural health education.

This is the first site in rural Western Australia to have access to this level of technology, including three human-like simulation mannequins, two clinical demonstration areas and five customisable consultation rooms.

The Centre also received $2 million of funding from the Federal Department of Health.
