Over 450 Colleagues have contributed to MD2025!

With 20 of the 22 planned MD2025 stakeholder consultation workshops now complete, we would like to thank everyone for their participation so far. 

The Project Team have been impressed with the level of enthusiasm and commitment from colleagues to contribute to our curriculum transformation.

Over 350 colleagues have attended one or more of the 20 sessions across our campuses and clinical sites and over 70 colleagues have attended similar sessions with our UQ-Ochsner colleagues in New Orleans. 

At every workshop we have had wide-ranging discussions around the challenges for the healthcare sector, current strengths of the MD program, UQ and the community, and the desired attributes of our graduates to meet future community needs. 

In addition, to date, we have received over 30 written submissions to the project mailbox and through the online submission portal on our project webpage.  This rich data is now being collated and analysed by the Project Team to identify emerging themes and key drivers to inform the next stage of the project. 

If you have not yet had a chance to contribute it is not too late.  Written submissions are still able to be submitted until the end of September, and there are still a couple of workshops running in late September and early October which you can register for here.

The next round of workshops is currently in the planning stages for November.  The focus of these workshops will be on sharing the insights from the first round of workshops to develop the proposed purpose, values, principles and future graduate attributes for the UQ medical program.  Details of these workshops will be advertised widely and we encourage you to check the MD2025 website regularly for updates and how to register for a workshop.

The Project Team would like to thank everyone who has contributed to the process thus far, and look forward to further discussions as we develop our ideas and progress with designing our new curriculum.
