The JVCC will be a training and observation centre for students to learn about, and deliver clinical and telehealth services. To further support learning across the NEViHN, students and clinicians will use the JVCC to access medicine and health specialists, including specialistled education sessions.

The JVCC will also be the coordination point to maintain virtual reality  programs, support student learning via virtual reality, and provide space to capture simulation exercises for students to access from across the NEViHN.

Their experience will be structured by a clear academic curriculum and guided by an overseeing academic mentor. Students will gain an understanding of rural health issues, telehealth and related procedures and treatments, while following key patients along their health journey.
