The University of the Sunshine Coast has been busting to get into medical science, what with the flash new Sunshine Coast University Hospital on its patch. But it couldn’t while there were no med school teaching places there. The feds fixed that last month committing to fund 50 places at the hospital, via Griffith University’s medical school (CMM September 1)and so last night USC announced it would begin teaching a bachelor of medical science in first semester next year. USC says it expects 20 of its graduates will have “provisional direct entry,” into the Griffith med school at the hospital. This is very big win for USC.
