UQ Medical School introduces new leadership roles

This past spring, the Faculty of Health Sciences at the University of Queensland has established three pivotal clinical leadership roles to lead clinical education, research and academic activities within partner teaching hospitals.

University of Queensland Medical School

Learn more about UQ Medical School and their clinical school placements

The positions include Associate Dean (Clinical) at faculty level and two new heads of clusters within the UQ Medical School to cover UQ’s Northern and Southwestern clusters of clinical schools and teaching hospitals in South East Queensland. Establishing the positions was a key recommendation from the Clinical Schools Working Party Report. Faculty of Health Sciences Executive Dean Professor Nicholas Fisk said the appointments introduced in March will enhance the faculty’s world-class standards in clinical teaching and clinical research.

“Ensuring the next generation of health professionals receives the highest standard of clinical training and increasing research collaboration in clinical areas will directly impact the health of the community and are focal objectives of these roles,” Professor Fisk said.

“These roles should drive a more robust clinical school model, with more senior representation both on the ground and within the faculty and university, underpinning its core importance to our clinical teaching and clinical research effort,” Professor Fisk said, adding that they are very pleased with the high calibre of appointees they recruited for the positions.

Associate Dean (Clinical): Professor Gerald Holtmann
This senior role, positioned alongside the Associate Dean (Academic) and Associate Dean (Research) at faculty level, is intended to oversee multidisciplinary clinical engagement across schools and clinical schools in the Faculty of Health Sciences. Professor Holtmann has had a distinguished career as a physician  scientist in Australia and Germany, with more than 200 publications including articles in The Lancet and The New England Journal of Medicine, and has also been CEO of the University Hospital of Essen in Germany. He is currently Director of Gastroenterology and Hepatology at Princess Alexandra Hospital.

Head of UQ’s Southwestern Clinical School Cluster: Professor Darrell Crawford
This role will provide leadership and direction across all clinical schools within the cluster including Princess Alexandra, Mater, Greenslopes, QEII and Ipswich hospitals. Professor Crawford is currently the acting Head of the UQ Medical School. He is a leading hepatologist and clinical scientist and, until recently, was Head of the Clinical School at Greenslopes Private Hospital and Head of the Discipline of Medicine at UQ and made major contributions to the School of Medicine over recent years.

Head of UQ’s Northern Clinical School Cluster: Professor Leonie Callaway

This role will provide leadership and direction across all clinical schools within the cluster environment, including those at Royal Brisbane and Women’s, Prince Charles, Nambour, Redcliffe, Caboolture, Wesley and St Andrew’s hospitals. Professor Leonie Callaway is an obstetric physician whose research and clinical focus is on obesity and medical disorders during pregnancy. She has been Head of the Royal Brisbane & Women’s Hospital Clinical School since 2007.

Why Canadians like Monash University Medical School

Yes, there are medical schools in Canada. So why study in Melbourne, Australia?

Monash University Medical School

Learn more about Monash Medical School

Australia is an exciting country with a rich international culture. In the Australian state of Victoria, 45 per cent of people were born overseas, or have a parent who was born overseas. In Melbourne, the capital city of Victoria, you will hear people speak more than 150 different languages. Melbourne was ranked “World’s No. 1 Most Liveable City” by the Economist Intelligence Unit 2012 for the second consecutive year. The August 2012 Report rated Melbourne as the ideal  destination thanks to a widespread availability of goods and services, low personal risk and an effective infrastructure.

Although Monash University is barely 50 years old, the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences is ranked at 33 in the Clinical, Pre-Clinical and Health Universities category of the Times Higher Education World University Rankings.

In 2013, the authoritative QS rankings placed Monash University‘s medical program at 29 worldwide. Monash is also the only Australian university represented within the prestigious M8 Alliance of academic health centres and medical universities. This elite grouping includes Johns Hopkins University in the United States, Imperial College London, the Sorbonne in Paris the Charité in Berlin and Université de Montréal among others. Monash University Medical School is  highly prominent at the pre-eminent global forum for global health, the annual World Health Summit in Berlin that sets the future direction for health care policy and public health.

Monash University Medical School offers a five year, direct entry, undergraduate medical course compared with the minimum of seven years for an accelerated program in Canada. This course is only offered to students that have not undertaken any university study.

Do doctors know best? JCU lecture studies health care

Who makes the decisions about a person’s health care was examined in a James Cook University public lecture recently.

JCU Medical School

Learn more about JCU Medical School

The presentation, titled Doctors know best: Why patients should make decisions about their health care & how they can do so, was presented by Professor Linda Shields, Director of the Tropical Health Research Unit in JCU‘s School of Nursing, Midwifery and Nutrition and Townsville Hospital and Health Service.

The presentation was part of JCU’s Science & Society in the Tropics Public Lecture Series.

Professor Shields said the delivery, and acceptance, of advice on medical matters had changed over the last century.

“In years past, people who received health care were never involved in making decisions about it – that was left to the doctor, who was said to know best,” Professor Shields said.

“Such thinking has changed, and now people are becoming more aware of the issues surrounding their health and how to maintain it.”

Professor Shields said technological innovations had influenced awareness and attitudes.

“The internet has played a big part in this, but it can be misleading, with a wide range in the quality of information on offer,” she said. “People will be able to go to their nurse or doctor with relevant information and the confidence to be able to discuss it.”

About JCU Medical School and the MBBS program

James Cook University’s medical school offers a six-year, full-time undergraduate degree in medicine and surgery, Bachelor of Medicine Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS). This medical program aims to produce graduates of the highest academic standards, who can progress to medical practice and to further studies in medical specialties. The course places special emphasis on rural and Indigenous health and tropical medicine. If you are interested in global health, and the health people in rural and remote places, JCU medicine may be a great fit for you.

Program title: Bachelor of Medicine Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS)
Location: Townsville, Queensland
Semester intake: February
Program duration: 6 years
