We provide programs for medical students as well as prevocational and vocational training in multiple specialties.

We believe that ongoing education and training of all medical staff underpins safe patient-centred care of the highest standards. 

The Randwick Campus Redevelopment Project, a partnership between the Prince of Wales Hospital, the Sydney Children’s Hospital - RandwickThe Royal Hospital for Women, the Eastern Suburbs Mental Health Services and the University of New South Wales will further enable us to develop our educational facilities and profile, by uniting research, education and service provision in one integrated setting.

The Prince of Wales Hospital Medical Education Unit (POWH MEU)

EBB%20Education%20hub.jpgThe provision of high quality education and training has been identified as a key strategic direction for the Prince of Wales Hospital. As a result, a dedicated Medical Education Unit (MEU) was established in 2017 to support the delivery of Vocational and Prevocational Education and coordinate the development of Junior Medical Officer Mentorship, Leadership, Engagement and Wellbeing Programs. The MEU also supports Medical Education Support Officers from various programs. The MEU is tasked with producing the POWH Education Report, to showcase a snapshot of our educational achievements.
