The Office of Medical Education

The Office of Medical Education (OME) is responsible for the smooth running of the UQ MD program and for leading the provision of a high quality educational experience supported by robust assessment. The OME’s aim is to ensure that graduates are well prepared to be doctors who provide excellent healthcare to their patients and communities wherever in the world they practice.

The OME takes a whole-of-program approach to the education of medical students. This is a highly collaborative endeavour in which the OME works closely with the various stakeholder groups, including clinical schools, to enable UQ medical graduates to be well prepared to move on to the next stage of medical training.


The Faculty commenced a multi-year transformation of its medical program (MD DESIGN) in May 2019. As a major step in the longer term evolution of the UQ Medical Program, MD DESIGN will see the successful implementation of a new medical program which will prepare UQ graduates for modern clinical practice for the future in Australia, and globally. The project is being managed in three major stages and will culminate in commencement of year 1 of the new medical program in January 2023. Stage 1 has been focused on the strategy and high-level design of the new curriculum and was completed in November 2020. Further details are available here: www.medicine.uq.edu.au/md-design
