Education session in the Clinical Skills Centre

Education

Austin Health's excellent teaching reputation, new facilities and consistent high scores in clinical examinations have made it a top choice for new graduates from medicine, nursing and allied health.

The Clinical Education Unit (CEU) is responsible for clinical education governance at Austin Health within a Best Practice Clinical Learning Environment. The CEU has three pillars of education: Allied Health, Medicine and Nursing. Each pillar has a leader who is responsible for day to day education as well as ensuring the workforce is well positioned to meet the National Safety and Quality in Health Service Standards. This integrated approach to education and training aims to ensure that Austin Health has knowledgeable, skilled staff which is reflected in the quality of care to our patients.

The Health Science Library located at the Austin Hospital provides Library services for all staff across Austin Health and Mercy Hospital for Women. Our Library achieved a new benchmark high in the National Library survey in 2012.
