The project forms the final part of the Northern Territory’s full medical education program that completes the pathway for students to undergo their entire medical training in the Northern Territory. The building provides a transition between a university and a hospital for medical students, and includes a direct physical link to the main hospital via a new bridge for a more hands-on learning experience.

Overcoming Darwin’s relative isolation, students will receive a high quality education on a par with any in the world. The building incorporates highly sophisticated audio visual and modern teaching facilities. A thoughtfully designed student common room where students can relax and mingle is at the heart of the new building and supports a strong sense of collegiality.

The site allocated is to the South of the existing Building 4 at the Royal Darwin Hospital campus adjacent to the John Mathews building.

ICT and audiovisual infrastructure scoped within the approved budged for both new and proposed refurbished building.

The project will deliver teaching spaces and office accommodation to Flinders University NTMP, Clinical Learning and Aboriginal Clinical Learning.”
