December 2018 Graduations

Bachelor Health Sciences - Class of 2018

Congratulation Elaina, Taya, Chanelle and all our other Bachelor of Health Sciences graduates!

Doctor of Medicine - Class of 2018

It’s not often that two generations of family members get to scrub into surgical theatre together but that’s exactly what happened with Professor Greg Scalia and his two children William and Isabel during their final year surgical rotation. With both William and Isabel graduating from the MD this week, Professor Scalia clearly couldn’t be prouder. Congratulations Class of 2018!

Stop and smell the roses along the way

Professor Stuart Carney sits down with Dr Lauren Peck - 2018 Doctor of Medicine valedictorian to chat about her time at UQ, and what advice she has for those starting their journey.
