Teaching locations

ANU Medical School conducts teaching at many sites throughout the ACT, the south east region of NSW and in remote Northern Territory. See our hospital based locations in orange, our community practice based locations in red and our teaching classrooms in yellow.

Acton campus

The Medical School is located in the Florey Building 54 Mills Road Acton. Students have access to a large suite of computers, teaching and study rooms with the latest conference technology and a well equipped common room.

As part of Australia’s top research institution our students also have access to state-of-the-art research laboratories and facilities across ANU main campus.

Canberra based hospitals

The Canberra Hospital, a 672 bed public hospital, is our main teaching hospital. It is the principal hospital for Canberra and the surrounding region, providing high-quality and patient-centred care to a population of more than 500,000 people. There is a high degree of integration of the teaching faculty into the service delivery of the hospital.

All major medical and surgical specialties are covered, with a busy obstetrics and gynaecology service, neonatal intensive care and the largest paediatric service outside a major metropolitan paediatric hospital. The hospital also has a modern, well equipped Emergency department. The clinical services are underpinned by state-of-the-art pathology, imaging and library services.

Calvary Hospital comprises a 250 bed public hospital and a 109 bed private hospital.  Calvary also operates a 19-bed hospice, Clare Holland House, on the shores of Lake Burley Griffin. Calvary offers excellent clinical learning opportunities in general medicine and general surgery, as well as obstetrics and gynaecology and acute care.

General Practice partnerships within ACT and NSW

ANU Medical School is fortunate to have over 150 General Practitioners from 36 practices who give their time and energy to train the next generation of doctors. Our partner GPs are trusted advisors in their communities who bring their expertise and insights to inspire, lead and develop medical students. To learn more about General Practice Teaching.

Rural nodes

The Rural Clinical School has six (6) rural nodes, which accommodate students on clinical placement in the areas of Eurobodalla, Bega, Cooma, Cowra, Goulburn and Young. Each location is also set-up with teaching facilities so that students who are accepted into the rural stream have support and expertise from regional academics, professional staff, hospital and general practices to learn onsite.
