MQ Health Doctors in Training Program
Introducing MQ Health
As Australia’s first fully integrated, university-led academic health sciences centre, MQ Health at Macquarie University brings together world-class clinical care, teaching and research. With a focus on patients and an ultimate goal of improving lives, MQ Health represents the convergence of the continuous learning and research endeavours of Macquarie’s Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences with the clinical care provided in the Macquarie University Hospital, primary care and multi-specialty clinics.
Doctors in Training
MQ Health’s Doctors in Training program offers an exciting new opportunity for recently graduated doctors and doctors seeking specialty training, including interns, fellows and registrars. Through this program, MQ Health helps address the national shortage of postgraduate clinical training places in Australia, by unlocking the private healthcare system and creating additional training opportunities.
Doctors in Training are a part of MQ Health’s unique integrated ecosystem of students, researchers, allied health professionals, junior doctors, doctors and specialists working together towards improving health outcomes for patients and the community, in a research-intensive academic environment.
The program is based at Macquarie University Hospital and at MQ Health clinics. The program’s scope not only provides junior doctors with exposure to clinical care and a more personalised clinical training experience, but also gives them access to medical education and research—all under the expert supervision of Macquarie clinicians.
