We proudly acknowledge that high quality education and research in medicine, biomedical sciences and public health would not be possible without the tireless work of our hospital and clinic-based health professionals. These health professionals may be registrars in teaching hospitals, eminent specialists in private practice, or experienced general practitioners who play a vital role in primary care.

They are vital in training the next generation of doctors and health professionals. To recognise the work of these hardworking health professionals, the Faculty awards individuals with academic titles.

Every day, our Academic Title Holders supervise research students, mentor up and coming junior researchers, and take on hours of research activity in their own time to find better ways of treating patients.

More than 2,600 Queensland doctors do this special work on behalf of UQ every day.

Next time you visit your GP or specialist, take a second look to see if they are hold a title other than doctor (eg. Professor) - or look for a small Health at UQ pin on their lanyard. These are two small clues to let you know your doctor is an Academic Title Holder.

New and existing applications for academic titles are welcomed. These titles are assessed by the relevant school leaders and committees and awarded on a three year basis to professionals who make significant contributions to the University.

We thank our Academic Title Holders for being an integral part of medical education and research at The University of Queensland.
