Headed by Professor Leonie Callaway, our Northern Cluster of clinical schools are situated on Brisbane's north-side and include the Northside, Royal Brisbane , St Andrew’s and Wesley and Sunshine Coast Clinical Schools.
The South-Western Cluster of Clinical Schools, headed by Professor Peter Soyer, are situated throughout the south-western side of Brisbane incorporating the Greenslopes, Princess Alexandra, Ipswich and Mater Clinical Schools.
Our Rural Clinical School provides high quality medical education and training experiences for students in rural and regional areas. The premise is that medical students who have a positive living and learning experience in a rural or regional setting will be encouraged to take up rural practice, thus enhancing the sustainability and viability of rural health care services. Our teaching sites feature learning resources and facilities that support and facilitate face-to-face, bedside and online learning. Our main teaching sites are located at Bundaberg, Hervey Bay, Rockhampton, and Toowoomba with additional clinical operations in the rural Queensland towns of Dalby and St George.
The offshore clinical school of Ochsner (United States) enables students to benefit from UQ’s expertise and teaching excellence. This includes opportunities for graduate and student clinicians to work with internationally renowned researchers and boost the synergy between research and clinical care.
As well as collaborating with hospitals and other clinical partners, The University of Queensland also operates UQ Health Care. The not for profit organisation incorporates three Brisbane-based primary health care clinics in Ipswich, Annerley and Meadowbrook. The clinics were established with $10m in funding through the Federal Government’s GP Super Clinic initiative and focus on the health needs of the local community, with an emphasis on wellness and preventative care.
UQ researchers and clinicians play an important role in Children’s Health, ensuring the best possible health outcomes for children and young people at Brisbane’s Royal Children’s Hospital. Queensland Health partnered with The University of Queensland and Queensland University of Technology (QUT) to build a new research facility at the Lady Cilento's Children’s Hospital. The new research facility will place Queensland at the forefront of international paediatric research in Australia.
