The Sunshine Coast Health Institute (SCHI) is a world-class education and training facility located alongside the new Sunshine Coast University Hospital (SCUH).

TAFE Queensland (as represented by TAFE Queensland East Coast) has entered into an unincorporated joint venture with the Sunshine Coast Hospital and Health Service, the University of the Sunshine Coast (USC), and a medical school to deliver a variety of unique training experiences at SCHI (pronounced Sky).

Partners in the venture will band together to bring SCHI to life over the coming years, providing dedicated education and training programs to help build our region’s existing and future healthcare workforce.

TAFE Queensland East Coast General Manager Dr Paul Wilson said SCHI will ensure the new hospital will fulfill its important role as a tertiary teaching hospital.

“Around 360 TAFE students were the first to be trained in the facility when classes commenced in January 2017 – well ahead of the expected official opening of the hospital operations to patients in April 2017,” Dr Wilson said.

“Initially we are offering 8 primary training courses, but expect this offering to grow significantly as the communities need for specialised health and health related programs continues to evolve over the coming years.”

“Notably, TAFE students will receive priority placements within the hospital which is an enormous advantage for all of our students throughout the region,” he said.
