As a leading public healthcare provider in the region of south-east Queensland servicing over 590,000 residents, GCH recruits from metropolitan and rural socio-economic groups resulting in a large patient base.
We accept patients from all Gold Coast areas extending north, to Beenleigh and receive patient referrals in Northern and Regional New South Wales to the south. Our facilities include Gold Coast University Hospital, Robina Hospital, Varsity Day Surgical Hospital, health precincts and community clinics.
We aim for a 40 day approval process for each ethics and governance application, particularly if completed in parallel. We also adopt the National Health and Medical Research Council's processes for site assessment and authorisation.
The Visiting Research Fellowship Program provides support for external researchers to foster new ideas and enhance research capacity and productivity with GCH staff.
