Concord Clinical School

Concord Clinical School is a teaching hospital of the University of Sydney based at Concord Repatriation General Hospital (CRGH), renowned for its teaching and scientific excellence.

The medical student teaching program provides a supportive and cooperative environment for integrated, interdisciplinary learning at all levels, from the four years of the medical program through to graduate studies and medical professional training. Our students are taught by leading clinicians in their field and our staff are experienced and approachable. Concord Hospital has a large and diverse range of specialty departments and students are placed with experienced supervisors in medical and surgical settings.

In 2012 Concord Clinical School relocated to a state of the art purpose built facility.

Our facility is equipped with sophisticated IT and Audiovisual installations. This allows us great flexibility in conducting our teaching programs and integrating with other Health facilities and the University. Our program includes an advanced, high fidelity simulation centre used to teach medical students and medical staff in hands-on simulated scenarios.
