Body donation program
With the vision of being a world class university health sciences centre, integrating clinical care, learning and research to improve lives, MQ Health incorporates the Faculty of Medicine, Health and Human Sciences, Macquarie University Hospital and Clinics.
MQ Health builds on our aspiration to create integrated approaches to patient care, discovery and workforce preparation that are already well established within the United States, Europe and Asia.
It will bring together the excellent work of medical and allied health researchers across the University and around the country, with unparalleled access to the world-leading clinical resources and research facilities found only on our campus.
We are searching for experienced clinical academic leaders who are interested in pursuing new paradigms in medical learning and teaching. You’ll have medical qualifications, be registered to undertake clinical practice in Australia and hold recognised Australian college speciality qualifications. Find out more about clinical academics.
Macquarie University Hospital is Australia’s first and only private, not-for-profit teaching hospital on a university campus. Visit the Macquarie University Hospital website.
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||TBA|
|Cancer||Professor Richard Kefford|
|Cardiovascular and Respiratory||Professor Alvin Ing|
|Critical Care and Anaesthetics||Professor Michael Parr|
|Neurosciences||Professor Marcus Stoodley|
|Primary Care, Wellbeing and Diagnostics||Professor Simon Willcock|
|Surgery and Gastrointestinal||Associate Professor Anil Keshava|
Appointment as an Honorary Clinical Academic with Macquarie University’s Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences reflects commitment to this vision and is a necessary first step.
