Canberra Hospital clinical and academic units

ANU Medical School Caberra Hospital campus

Canberra Hospital hosts a number of ANU clinical and academic units, as well as oncological clinical trials.

Metropolitan Clinical Teaching Unit

The Canberra Hospital campus is the ANU Medical School metropolitan based clinical teaching unit.

We pride ourselves on our teaching program which has a strong foundation of basic and clinical sciences, and the depth and breadth of the student experience during years three and four of the Medicinae ac Chirurgiae Doctoranda (MChD) program, Latin for Doctor of Medicine and Surgery.

Academic Unit of General Practice

The Academic Unit of General Practice is a community resource committed to providing excellence in health education. Based at the Canberra Hospital, it is funded by the ANU Medical School and ACT Health. The unit's activities span education, research and community service.

The nationally recognised General Practitioner Vocational Training Group provides all of the GP registrar training in the ACT and South East NSW region and continuing medical education for specialist GPs. The unit also supports overseas trained doctors in attaining fellowship of the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners.

The Academic Unit of General Practice is committed to improving Australia’s capacity to undertake high quality primary health care research. Several of our major research projects have evolved from the kindergarten screening program coordinated with ACT Community Health Maternal & Child Health nurses since 1998.
