In a land mark effort to reach out as an organisation that is “Committed to Community” The Valley Private is providing training opportunities to undergraduate post graduate and practicing specialists.

In a first of its kind Emily Hargreaves a final year medical student has completed a 6 week work experience at the Valley Private Hospital in Mulgrave during which she has been able to experience from and learn by one on one contact with senior specialist medical staff nurses and allied staff in a wide range of specialities as part of her final training prior to working as a Doctor.

The wide mix of complex cases including cardiac neurosurgery, advanced Laparoscopy, Orthopaedics and Urology, ICU and Anaesthetics with utilisation of state of the art new technology as part of a 80 Million dollar expansion that has included Three D camera systems for advanced Laparoscopic surgery and Spinal Robotics.

“It was fantastic to be the first to experience this previously-untapped resource, and particularly that of an innovative surgical team like LSA. All staff, not exclusively medical staff, have been very forthcoming in helping me navigate the workings of the hospital and maximize the opportunities to see, participate in and learn from useful cases. At Valley Private, I was offered a thorough exposure to a diverse range of departments – radiology, ICU, diverse surgical specialties – as well as technology and cases to which I would never have been afforded access in the public teaching sector. I will certainly be recommending this placement to fellow students in the future.”

It is envisaged that training opportunities will widen to increasingly include post graduate specialist surgeon as well as practicing surgeon wanting to learn to use the new technology currently unavailable in the public hospital system.
