Teaching, education & research
We are proud of its role as a teaching and research hospital and supporting the next generation of healthcare professionals.
We have a range of students undertaking clinical placements to gain essential experience. From time to time patients may be asked to participate in teaching, staff training and/or research activities. Your doctor and care team will discuss with you the involvement of students in your care. Be comfortable in saying yes or no to having students attend to you.
Research activities may range from answering questions about your health, to trialling a new kind of treatment, medication or device. All research conducted at Alfred Health has been approved by an ethics committee. Research participation is always voluntary.
