The hospital is a small facility located in Vunisea village, near the airport on Fiji’s fourth largest island. It is a small hospital supplying the local and tourist populations of the Kadavu Group. The hospital opened in 1996 with the assistance of Australian Aid, and provides a range of basic medical services, although patients with more serious ailments are medivaced to Suva on the main island. Kadavu is one of the least developed regions of Fiji and the majority of the indiginous population survive by subsistance farming and exporting surplus to the main island of Viti Levu.
Electives in Fiji are organised through the Fiji School of Medicine (FSMed), a school of the Fiji National University, and are between four and six weeks for international students, although longer clerkships may be available for a fee.
