Clinical learning from day one
MQ Health provides an opportunity for you to learn in a research-active clinical environment from your first day. You will learn from leading medical educators, researchers and clinicians who conduct their research and clinical activities on campus and have been actively involved in the curriculum development of the program.
Throughout your training, you will develop a holistic understanding of the patient and their needs. You will benefit from the unique opportunity to follow a patient from initial consultation through to treatment and discharge, and develop professional relationships with both patients and their families during the treatment journey.

"As the CEO of Macquarie University Hospital (MUH) I am enthusiastic about the introduction of the Doctor of Medicine to Macquarie University.I have seen first-hand the value that global education and training brings to delivering cutting- edge, evidence-based care to our patients and the community. We are all thrilled to see this international influence shaping our future medical workforce at an early stage through the Doctor of Medicine, and know that our clinicians and patients will benefit as much as the medical students from this MQ Health clinical partnership. I believe that the relationships formed at this initial stage of medical training are vital to the future of the hospital and hope that for many of our medical students it will be the beginning of a lifelong association with MUH and MQ Health."
"Macquarie University Hospital is a great environment for an intern. It’s a beautiful facility with state-of-the-art technology. The staff enjoy working here and are very pleasant. Many of the doctors have chosen Macquarie University Hospital to further their careers in research, which means I am surrounded by brilliant minds who are leaders in their field of expertise. Being able to learn from these people is an amazing opportunity.
“I cherish the opportunities that are made available to me. I have spent a number of hours in operating theatres learning hands-on skills and gaining knowledge I don't think I would have attained elsewhere."
