Clinical programs

In order to adapt to the changing and often complex needs of our patients, now and into the future MQ Health has developed a clinical program structure with the patient and carer’s needs top of mind. This involves the organisation of our clinical services, research and teaching programs around complex disease processes rather than traditional clinical speciality based models. Our structure is created with the aim of embedding a coordinated and integrated team-based approach to care across the continuum of prevention, screening, diagnosis, treatment and ongoing management and support underpinned by the latest evidence and research. Our seven Clinical Programs and their leaders are as follows:

Clinical Program Clinical Program Head
Bone and Joint Associate Professor Desmond Bokor
Cancer Professor Richard Kefford
Cardiovascular and Respiratory Dr Jason Kaplan
Critical Care and Anaesthetics Professor Michael Parr
Neurosciences Professor Marcus Stoodley
Primary Care, Wellbeing and Diagnostics Professor Simon Willcock
Surgery and Gastrointestinal Associate Professor Alice Lee
