Charles Sturt University has been provided with funding of $22 million to develop a new Rural Medical School in Orange in partnership with the University of Western Sydney.
CSU Vice-Chancellor Professor Andrew Vann notes that CSU is at the forefront of rural and regional medical training, and will be creating qualified doctors who will understand the particular health needs of regional communities.
The partnership between Charles Sturt University and the University of Western Sydney builds on the University of Western Sydney’s existing training presence at Bathurst with an initial cohort of 37 students programmed commence at Orange campus in 2021.
A project delivery team has been appointed and is working with DFM for the planning and delivery of the next step of our campus development, what is being referred to as Stage 2.
The project is in early functional briefing and concept design phase, which involves defining key design principles such as building size, location and spatial allocation.
The Division of Facilities Management will facilitate rehabilitation works on the Bathurst Campus to Village Drive from the Gymnasium (1220) through to John Oxley Village car park P12, Ordnance Road from Village Drive through to the concrete pavement behind Truskett Library (1412) and Wirri Place.
