MD Curriculum Review – MD2025

Welcome to the MD2025 Project. Here you will find information about the project and how you can get involved. This page will be regularly updated as the project progresses.

The UQ Doctor of Medicine (MD) Curriculum is in need of a major review to better prepare UQ medical graduates for modern clinical practice in Australia, the United States and elsewhere. 

The needs of the populations that our future graduates will serve are changing.  Our communities are ageing and a greater proportion are now living with chronic conditions and co-morbidities. There are significant and growing health inequalities across our communities. These are acutely felt by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island people and those living in regional and remote Australia. 

Current models of care need to evolve and shift towards a greater focus on prevention, team-based care, digital healthcare, and community-based practice.  Increasing use of technology in both health and education requires doctors of the future to employ a new range of skills.

MD2025 represents the next step in the continuous improvement of our Medical Program. Together we will build on recent improvements to create a program that is innovative, positioning UQ as a global leader in medical education.
