Lakeview Private Hospital welcomes medical students from Western Sydney University
The first group of medical students was welcomed to Lakeview Private Hospital in February to train at our outstanding facility under the instruction of leading surgeons and anaesthetists.
“We are very proud to open
the doors of our modern patient-focused facility to the next generation of medical professionals, and let them experience an environment where doctors can truly perform at their best,” said Rosemary McDonald, Lakeview Private Hospital General Manager.
As part of an agreement with the Western Sydney University and Blacktown-Mt Druitt Clinical School, final year students are attached to either the department of anaesthetics or surgery while at Lakeview Private Hospital.
“Under the care of specialist Lakeview Private Hospital surgeons, the medical students are observing in operating theatres and endoscopy suites that are the largest of their kind in Sydney and are fully fitted out with superb equipment,” explained Rosemary McDonald. “As a purely elective facility students are learning in a relaxed atmosphere.”
Elaine Cheng, one of the medical students, said, “It is a great opportunity to be learning at Lakeview Private Hospital. The doctors have been welcoming and supportive. I really appreciate being able to have access to speciality areas such as ENT surgery.”
As part of their visit, the students toured the hospital’s facilities including the long stay ward, the rehabilitation department with hydrotherapy pool and spa, pathology and radiology labs, on-site pharmacy and the large conference facilities.
