Flinders Medical Centre is a focus of intellectual activity and hosts academics from overseas.
Co-location of the hospital with the Finders University has encouraged an innovative approach to teaching. The medical course is run through the Flinders University School of Medicine.
Flinders Medical Centre works in partnership with the Flinders University School of Nursing and Midwifery.
In addition to medicine and nursing, the Flinders University Faculty of Health Sciences offers a range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses.
Internationally, Flinders Medical Centre plays a key role in a training program in Papua New Guinea for medical, nursing and allied health workers.
Resources for staff and students at the hospital include the Gus Fraenkel Medical Library.
