Mrs Robyn Adams and Ms Joanna Bouyesi visiting the UniSA Health and Medical Clinic

On the 12th July, Robyn Adams, Executive Officer for ACDHS, was in Adelaide and visited the University of South Australia’s new Health and Medical Clinic.

The clinic is part of an expansion of clinical teaching and training space to meet the clinical placement demand resulting from student growth

The new $5million facility, located on North Terrace within Adelaide’s health precinct and opposite the new Royal Adelaide Hospital, is equipped with state-of-the-art consulting rooms, generous group spaces, two exercise areas (one focusing on adult rehabilitation and the other on children and adolescent services), a staff kitchen and a case conference room. The clinic is shared with the UniSA Health Medical Clinic which provides GP services to staff, students and the public from two UniSA Campuses – City East and City West.

The clinic can support a maximum of 357 placements annually across multiple disciplines including physiotherapy, occupational therapy, exercise physiology, podiatry, pharmacy, nursing and midwifery,
