Wagga Wagga Rural Clinical School

The Wagga Wagga Rural Clinical School opened in June 2011 in the grounds of Calvary Health Care Riverina, providing office space for staff, a tutorial room, a small library and computer work stations for students.

On 4 August 2014, a standalone, purpose built clinical school building was officially opened. The new building was part of a project funded by the Commonwealth Government under a Rural Clinical Schools funding grant.

The new Clinical School building is comprised of tutorial rooms, consulting suites, academic and staff offices, a lecture theatre, student common room and staff facilities. The clinical school provides teaching facilities for students in both the third and final years of the School's medical program.

The Wagga Wagga Rural Clinical School was developed in conjunction with Calvary Health Care Riverina (CHCR), a service of the Little Company of Mary Health Care. Calvary Health Care Riverina services include Calvary Hospital, a well-established 100 bed private hospital in the Riverina providing acute surgical, medical and obstetric services in a fully renovated modern facility.

The Wagga Wagga Rural Clinical School also operates in partnership with the Murrumbidgee Local Health District and students undertake placements at the nearby Wagga Wagga Rural Referral Hospital, a 320 bed major regional referral hospital.
