Research & Learning


Central Coast Clinical School and Research Institute (CCCSRI)

 The $72.5 million Central Coast Clinical School and Research Institute (CCCSRI), a partnership between CCLHD and the University of Newcastle, is currently under construction.

CCCSRI Artwork Expression of Interest

As part of our development of the Central Coast Clinical School and Research Institute at our Gosford Hospital precinct with the University of Newcastle, we are looking for Expressions of Interest from Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander artists living on Darkinjung country who are interested in having their work displayed in the Institute.

As a place of learning and teaching, the Central Coast Clinical School and Research Institute would like to celebrate this region through art, ensure the land’s first peoples are acknowledged and recognised, and celebrate and cement a strong connection between the Darkinjung community and the Institute.

For more information on the project see the Expression of Interest.

The Central Coast Local Health District aims to become a global leader in integrated medical research. We are building our research leadership and expanding our research capacity, striving to see research become core business in all aspects of healthcare.

We encourage staff to strive for innovation and apply their knowledge and skills to investigate new ways of delivering care. Guiding our efforts is the CCLHD 2017-2021 Research Plan, which is aimed at changing the way health care is delivered across the region. The Plan sets out a clear map of achieving the District’s ‘Caring for the Coast’ strategy, focusing on key priorities around leadership, infrastructure, resources, training and collaboration.

Establishing a state-of-the-art Central Coast Medical School (CCMS) and Research Institute within a new Health & Wellbeing Precinct at Gosford Hospital is another significant step forward in paving the way for better health outcomes for our rapidly-growing community.

Developed in partnership with the University of Newcastle, these centres of excellence will deliver world-class medical training and research on the Central Coast. They will have the capacity to transform the regional economy and develop new career pathways for health professionals in the region.
