Coffs Harbour campus dazzles Assistant Minister of Health

The Hon Luke Hartsuyker MP, Member for Cowper, and Senator the Hon Fiona Nash, Assistant Minister for Health dropped into the Rural Clinical School's Coffs Harbour campus today. They experienced first-hand Coffs campus' rich learning environment, and were taken through a session on the Anatomage Table, a ground-breaking anatomy learning tool, by Head of the Coffs Harbour Campus, Dr Alison Seccull.

The Anatomage Table is the only computerised system that displays human anatomy in real life size, enabling rural medical students to better grasp the complex world of human anatomy, said Dr Seccull.

Head of UNSW’s Rural Clinical School, Dr Lesley Forster, was also there to welcome the MP and Assistant Minister for Health.

“UNSW’s Rural Clinical School brings world-class medical education to rural Australia and this technology is just one example of the state-of-the art equipment we are using to train the next generation of rural and Indigenous doctors,” Dr Forster said.
