The Flinders Southern Adelaide Clinical School (FSACS) is an academic unit which leads clinical teaching and research initiatives in Flinders University’s School of Medicine.
We are aligned not only with the Southern Adelaide Local Health Network (SALHN), but with clinical care in primary care, private specialist clinics and private hospitals.
We are primarily located within Flinders Medical Centre at Flinders University’s Bedford Park campus.

FSACS disciplines and their clinical and academic staff have an active teaching role into all four years of the medical course.
We also provide opportunities for students to undertake their entire third year of clinical and academic curriculum in tertiary teaching hospitals and other health services in suburban Adelaide.
