As is the case with the rest of Australia, Adelaide has modern, well-equipped hospitals with highly trained staff. There are also a number of quality teaching hospitals in Adelaide, and many of the city's hospitals are connected to a university.
Australia's public healthcare system, Medicare, provides subsidised or fully funded medical treatment to those who qualify. Citizens of Australia and New Zealand, as well as holders of certain visa categories, are usually eligible for these services. Those on shorter-term visas will usually not be covered under Medicare and will need to take out private health insurance instead.
