|Project:||Deakin Regional Community Health Hub (REACH)|
|Location:||Geelong Waurn Ponds Campus|
|Contact:||Bruce Hogan Tel: +613 522 73336|
The Deakin Regional Community Health Hub (REACH) was completed in December 2012.
This new facility provides additional space for the Faculty of Health, including a 200-seat lecture theatre.
REACH will respond to the critical health workforce shortage in regional and rural Australia, particularly for professional optometrists and exercise scientists. This shortage can be resolved by recruiting students from rural and regional Australia, and ensuring that training is also undertaken in rural and regional areas.
Through an innovative e-learning service, 'Deakin Health Online', REACH will provide new opportunities for health students and practitioners in rural and regional areas to access Higher Education. It will act as an electronic hub connecting workplaces to provide remote clinical supervision, tele-teaching and professional development.
