The University of Newcastle (UoN) is an Australian public university that was established in 1965. The University's main and largest campus is located in Callaghan, a suburb of Newcastle in New South Wales. The University also has campuses in Ourimbah, Port Macquarie, Singapore and Sydney CBD.

The university has enrolled approximately 15,256 full-time students and 15,080 part-time students (including more than 23,948 undergraduates).

Historically, the University of Newcastle Medical School has implemented the Problem-based learning system for its undergraduate Bachelor of Medicine programme - a system later mandatorily implemented by the Australian Medical Council throughout Australia. It was also the university that introduced Undergraduate Medicine and Health Sciences Admission Test (UMAT) in the early 1990s. UMAT has since been accepted widely by different medical schools across Australian as an additional selection criteria.

The University of Newcastle is a member of Innovative Research Universities Australia (IRU Australia).

Pelvic Floor Exercises and The Bits Below the Belt DVD Surgery to treat men with prostate cancer is often followed by months of difficulty controlling urine flow, a condition known as urinary incontinence.

Men Doing Pelvic Exercises Recover Earlier In the current study, the researchers randomly assigned 38 men scheduled for radical prostatectomy to either a treatment group or a control group. The men in the treatment group were referred to a physical therapist. They were instructed how to do Pelvic Floor Exercises both before and after surgery, using biofeedback to ensure they were using the proper muscles. The control group did not receive any formal instruction. All of the men completed questionnaires regarding bladder function at regular intervals over the next year.

17th Sept 08: Hi everyone, I just wanted to say thankyou for viewing my videos, and that it's good to see so many comments on this video. After thanking him for uploading all of the earlier episodes of BOTC, I received this unexpected message of abuse from Youtube user "aussieshep19" today: "aussieshep19 has sent you a message on YouTube: are u happy are u happy take my Battle of the Choirs video dowmload then and then upload then and call it your work. ass hole" I am incredibly disappointed that members of a YouTuble community could send each other messages like that. I just wanted to say that apart from his claim being absolutely untrue (our videos are clearly different), I hope that to make everyone aware of this individual. I have warned him that if he sends me any more abuse I will report him.
