The Royal Adelaide Hospital (RAH) is South Australia’s largest accredited teaching hospital, providing the people of South Australia (and nearby states and territories) with outstanding medical care and rehabilitation.
Since it was founded in 1840, the RAH has built an international reputation as one of Australia’s finest public teaching hospitals. The hospital offers basic training positions in internal medicine, surgery and general practice, as well as advanced training in a range of specialty areas. Our staff are also actively involved in cutting edge research, making the RAH a centre for both medical and research excellence.
Year 10 students took part in a PARTY (Preventing Risk- Related Trauma in Youth, where they were taken through the dangers of alcohol consumption and drug taking.
Students experienced what happens in emergency, ICU, physiotherapy; and were engaged with a young man who broke his neck while being intoxicated and jumping into the shallow end of a pool, to mention a few activities. An extremely valuable program.
With 680 beds, RAH is South Australia’s largest hospital. Founded in 1840, the Royal Adelaide provides tertiary health care services for South Australia and provides secondary care clinical services to residents of Adelaide’s city centre and inner suburbs.
The hospital is situated in the Adelaide Park Lands on the north side of North Terrace between Frome Road and the Adelaide Botanic Gardens. It is next to both the University of Adelaide and the University of South Australia. The land which it covers is also home to the University of Adelaide’s Medical School, the Adelaide Dental Hospital, The Hanson Institute and the Institute of Medical and Veterinary Science.
