Our primary purpose as a medical school is to educate and to innovate, in line with national goals for the Australian tertiary sector. Because we are a teaching hospital, we achieve these broad goals in a setting that values the direct care of patients and the advancement of medical science. We are committed to bringing together the best people and the most advanced technology to fight disease and improve the quality of life of all Australians.
Underpinning our education, medical research and clinical care is a strong team approach. This approach sees scholars working alongside highly qualified experts – and in close contact with patients – to determine the best treatment plan for every patient.
Our philosophy regarding medical education stems from our relationship with the Australian School of Advanced Medicine (ASAM) and its careful integration into both the hospital’s infrastructure and its operation. Operating suites, wards, consulting rooms and a collaborative team environment replace traditional lecture theatres and allow medical and health care workers to perform effectively and to reflect on how they are delivering the best possible care.
At Macquarie University Hospital we tirelessly pursue the best outcomes for our patients through teaching, research and advanced clinical care.
