University Notre Dame $8.5m training hub boost
Written on the 28 April 2017
Notre Dame University has secured millions of dollars from the Federal Government to establish a major new training hub at its Broome campus to address a growing shortage of healthcare professionals in the region.
Notre Dame will lead a consortium of universities to establish the Kimberley University Department of Rural Health, substantially increasing training opportunities for nursing, midwifery, allied health students and professionals.
The move aims to help ensure health students and profession-als have a greater opportunity to live, study and work in Broome and in other Kimberley communities.
The Broome campus will receive about $8.5 million a share of $26 million set aside specifically for additional university rural health departments.
