Teaching at HSNPH

We have been involved in the teaching of medical disciplines, including nursing and medicine, for many years. With our broad clinical profile, Holy Spirit Northside offer superb opportunities for learning.

In 2010 we formed an alliance with the Northside Clinical School, University of Queensland School of Medicine. This alliance was in response to the increasing need to provide nursing and medical students with mandated clinical learning experiences.

We continue to expand our teaching capacity and university partnerships. This expansion will include student groups from allied health and health information.



We are part of the Northside Clinical School, UQ School of Medicine. Medical students from the University of Queensland School of Medicine are regular attendees at our hospital. We teach Medicine in Society to third-year students, and offer regular attachments to clinical areas.

Our close ties with The Prince Charles Hospital (TPCH), Caboolture and Redcliffe, allow students to rotate between the hospitals with minimum of travel.

Postgraduate Teaching

Our Intensive Care Unit has received accreditation from the Intensive Care Society for postgraduate training. Registrars can spend 6 months with us as part of their experience.


We have a long association with the University of Queensland Clinical School through the School of Nursing, and have partnered with the Australian Catholic University and Brisbane TAFE for student nurse training. Recently our partnerships have also extended to the University of Tasmania.
