future home for multidisciplinary clinics

On Levels 1 and 2 of the UNSW Health Translation Hub (HTH) building, specially designed clinical spaces will provide clinical consultation and therapy spaces that help the community connect with leading experts across a broad range of disciplines.

The HTH Clinics have been designed as flexible multi-use spaces. State-of-the-art simulated spaces replicate clinical and virtual environments to help educate health students. The clinics are designed to support a range of practices – from medical consultation to psychological therapy and lifestyle counselling.

UNSW’s Dr Zoe Terpening, Director of Strategy and Precincts, said that through collaboration with the community, clinicians and researchers, different health solutions and models of care could be developed, refined and delivered.

The community will benefit from having so many different experts in one location, with teaching and research embedded in all that we do.

The HTH Clinics will support research in a range of activities including dementia care, eye health, cancer survivorship, cardiovascular disease prevention and additional activities like tax and legal advice.

The HTH Clinics will also enhance the student experience by embedding education with clinical care.

Construction of the UNSW HTH building is currently progressing to schedule, with a view to becoming operational from late 2025.
