Hedland Health Campus

District General Hospital | South Hedland , Australia

Hospital description

Headland Health Campus is a busy, district health service that has replaced the old hospital and which serves a population of approximately 15,000 people. It has a range of onsite services and also houses specialists who work on a rotation basis from the large Perth teaching hospitals. Some of the specialists are regular visitors and others are only at the hospital biannually, so careful planning will be required for this elective if students wish to study a particular specialism. It should also be noted that although the service will make efforts to accommodate students wishing to study with particular specialists this may not always be possible due to the constraints placed on visiting specialists.

The Royal Flying Doctor Service operates out of Port Headland Regional Hospital, serving many remote communities which are scattered in the outlying areas and the campus also offers community services, such as an Aboriginal Medical Service and a Community Health Centre.

As a rural placement, enquiries about this elective should initially be placed through the Rural Clinical School of Western Australia (RCSWA). The RCSWA will enquire at the hospital, and others in rural WA, regarding the opportunity of a placement. There is a Faculty Fee for this process that will be determined with the University of Western Australia.
