The MD DESIGN project commenced in mid 2019 and is now commencing Stage 3: Detailed Design and Pre-Implementation (which will run from October 2021 through to January 2023).

Stage 3 is focussed on the development of the detailed course level design as well as the preparation for implementation.  It follows on from Stage 2 which culminated in the formal endorsement of the new MD by the UQ Academic Board and approval by the UQ Vice-Chancellor and President.

It is anticipated that the new curriculum will be ready for accreditation by the Australian Medical Council in 2022 with the commencement of the new UQ MD program in January 2023.
