The purpose-built health facilities at LRHS give our students modern, interactive learning experiences and support the ground-breaking work of our diverse team of researchers.
The clinical learning environments at LRHS provide realistic but safe spaces for students to start putting theory into practice. They help students develop the clinical and critical thinking skills that are vital for a career as a health professional.
Experience gained in our world-class facilities mean our students confidently enter the workplace for their clinical placements with our industry partners.
Paramedicine Practical Laboratory
Our Paramedicine Simulation Laboratory is a key teaching space for paramedicine students to establish their clinical skills.
The space is fully equipped with industry-standard medical equipment as used in ambulance services around Australia, and also includes a range of manikins that enable students to undertake realistic patient care simulations including management of medical, trauma, paediatric and obstetric cases. In-built technology allows for recording of scenarios, a valuable student feedback component.
There is also a simulated residence which adds to the realism when carrying out clinical scenarios.
Simulated crash area
This outdoor space allows students to develop and test their paramedic skills in realistic simulated motor vehicle accidents (MVA) and other outdoor incidents. Several vehicles are able to be manoeuvred into a variety of configurations to provide a range of patient management and extrication experiences. Emergency service vehicles and staff can access the space to assist in the MVA scenarios.
