The UTS Graduate School of Health is set to move to a new home in the One Hundred Broadway building on the corner of Broadway and Abercrombie St in Chippendale, across the road from the Faculty of Engineering and IT building.
Located within the Central Park complex, One Hundred Broadway is due for completion later this year Following a custom fit-out of six floors, the Graduate School will be operating from the new facility from mid-2019.
The purpose-designed facilities will accommodate the Graduate School’s offering of postgraduate courses in the disciplines of pharmacy, clinical psychology, orthoptics and physiotherapy, along with new programs, such as genetic counselling, Indigenous health and speech pathology, as they are developed.
The Graduate School also plans to operate a multidisciplinary primary health care clinic at Central Park that supports its teaching and research but will also be of benefit to the community.
According to Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Resources), Patrick Woods, there are a number of compelling reasons for UTS to take on the long-term lease of the new premises.
“Not only is this beautifully designed building ideally located in relation to our growing city campus, it also gives us flexibility to custom design the interiors to meet the particular needs of the Graduate School of Health,” he says.
“Subject to planning approval, the Graduate School of Health fit-out will feature the latest in design and technology to support its teaching and research. This will include elements such as practice-based learning pod classrooms, clinical simulation rooms that mimic the clinical environment, and collaborative meeting rooms and work spaces.”
The Graduate School of Health has about 500 senior, postgraduate students. Up to 300 students will attend the One Hundred Broadway premises during semester in addition to 80 full-time researchers and clinical staff, along with patients and clinical research participants.
