Guide to the RCH

Teaching hospital

  • The RCH is a teaching hospital for doctors, nurses and allied health staff.  A student may ask to talk to you or your child or examine your child.  The RCH encourages parents to participate, however if you have any concerns please say 'no' and speak with the nurse unit manager (NUM) or your child's doctor.  The hospital also provides training for doctors from overseas.  These doctors are qualified and are gaining further skills in the care of children and young people.
