The general criteria for the establishment of a teaching hospital includes:

Attaining and maintaining the highest quality of clinical practice, have a culture of lifelong learning and apply the principles of evidence-based medicine.

Have at least four qualified departments, two of which must be in one of the traditional specialities such as internal medicine, OBS/GYN, paediatrics, surgery, family medicine or psychiatry and have sufficient clinical resources.

Demonstrate a commitment to excellence in both medical education and patient care.

Only when the above conditions are met will the GAHS designate a site as a “teaching hospital”. Individual departments meeting the criteria within a hospital will be approved as clinical rotation sites.
