$2m for bio-skills teaching laboratory at University of Adelaide

20 December 2006

The University of Adelaide will receive $2 million in 2007 towards the development of a bio-skills teaching laboratory, Minister for Immigration and Multicultural Affairs and Senator for South Australia Amanda Vanstone announced today.

‘The $2 million has been allocated through the higher education Capital Development Pool (CDP) Programme by my colleague, the Hon Julie Bishop MP, Minister for Education, Science and Training,’ Senator Vanstone said.

‘The funds will go towards providing facilities for the training of doctors and nurses in the study, preparation and dissection of anatomical specimens.

‘The integration of audio-visual technology will also allow the University to deliver training to other sites.

‘The laboratory will provide students with access to technological advances in medical training, including the use of human patient simulators.’

The CDP Programme supports proposals that assist in new campus developments in suburban growth corridors and regional centres, capital developments to establish or expand courses identified by the Government as discipline areas of national importance and communication and IT infrastructure projects that improve the cost-effectiveness and quality of educational delivery.

‘Almost $23 million in additional funding from the CDP has been allocated to Australian universities for use in 2007,’ Senator Vanstone said.

‘I congratulate the University of Adelaide on its success in securing funding for the bio-skills teaching laboratory project.’
