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 health professionals and to recognise the work of these hardworking health professionals, the Faculty awards individuals with academic titles.

Every day, our Academic Title Holders teach medical students, mentor junior researchers, and take on hours of research activity in their own time to improve patient care.

More than 4,000 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 (e.g. Professor) - or look for a small UQ pin on their lanyard. These are two small clues to let you know your doctor is an Academic Title Holder with The University of Queensland.

New and existing applications for academic titles are welcomed. These titles are awarded for a period of up to five years to health professionals who make significant contributions to The University and are assessed by the relevant organisational unit Heads, Faculty executives and committees commensurate to the level of appointment.

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