Murrumbidgee Clinical Teaching and Learning Centre (MCT&LC)

"Through the development of the Murrumbidgee Clinical Teaching and Learning Centre (the Centre) our project aims to provide a purpose-built educational and student accommodation facility to support innovate, multidisciplinary clinical teaching and training practices and expand clinical training capacity in the Murrumbidgee Region of NSW." (St Vincent's Private Community Hospital Project Definition Plan - January 2013 Version 006)

In close alignment with Priority 1 in the Griffith Community Action Plan (2010) – St Vincent's Private Community Hospital, Griffith (SVPCHG) will provide top level healthcare, collaborate to promote teaching and learning and support growth and development of the Griffith Community.

Integral to this, is the establishment of the Murrumbidgee Clinical Teaching and Learning Centre (MCT&LC). The MCT&LC will be collocated with St Vincent's Private Community Hospital and will provide shared access to clinical teaching facilities for medical, nursing and allied health professionals.

The Commonwealth has invested $4.985M in the Murrumbidgee Clinical Teaching and Learning Centre project and like SVPCHG, the Murrumbidgee Clinical Teaching and Learning Centre will operate through a 'hub and spoke' model by linking education and clinical partners.

Partners include:

  • University of Wollongong
  • University of Notre Dame
  • University of New South Wales
  • Charles Sturt University
  • Coast City Country Training
  • Local TAFE
  • Griffith Base Hospital
  • SVPCHG
  • SV&MHS

With the establishment of SVPCHG and the Murrumbidgee Clinical Teaching and Learning Centre, the Griffith community will enjoy the benefits of "an interlinked clinical and teaching campus of some 150 beds and related community and primary care infrastructure; a truly remarkable outcome and significant investment in health care for Griffith and the surrounding community…"(Health and Hospital Fund, Regional Priority Round Funding Application – ITA-084/1011 page 8)
