This Good Friday, more than 1200 medicine, nursing, dentistry, physiotherapy, audiology, biomedical, science, speech pathology and social work student students from the University of Melbourne will run a Teddy Bear Hospital (TBH) to raise funds for the Royal Children’s Hospital Good Friday appeal.

Up to 75 children from Ballarat will take part in a new teddy bear hospital at Yuille Park Community College. From today, Monday, the program, conducted by medical students from the The University of Melbourne, is a concept used to help young children ‘de-mystify’ the hospital experience.
