It means brand-new facilities for medicine, nursing, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, and speech pathology students!

In 2021, the new Susan Wakil Health Building will launch, bringing  medicine and health disciplines into a single space.

Sydney Nursing School and the Sydney School of Health Sciences will move from the current Mallet Street building and Cumberland campus respectively, along with the Central Clinical School and components of the Faculty of Medicine and Health.

The building has been designed to be agile for multidisciplinary teaching and learning across all health disciplines and a place of collaborative research. It will provide state-of-the-art clinical simulation programs and a multi-service clinic, as well as flexible infrastructure that supports team-based research programs.

From 2021, all medicine and health sciences students will be located at the university’s main Camperdown/Darlington campus.
