Whilst distinctive from each other, each of the student socities within the University Queensland’s School of Medicine contributes to the richness of experience on offer to the students at the School. We’ve enjoyed working with them and look forward to continuing to work towards that end.

The University of Queensland Medical Society (UQMS) is the peak representative body for students at the University of Queensland School of Medicine. As a not-for-profit association that is run by students, for students, the Society’s goal is to advocate, advance and promote the interests of all UQ medical students, enrich the academic and social spheres of medical study, develop and maintain professional links with local, state and national stakeholders and, through the Ashintosh Foundation, directly contribute to the community.
From its inception in 1936, the UQMS has maintained a significant and respected voice in medicine at a university, state and national level. Many traditions such as the annual May Ball, Sports Day and Trephine magazine still continue today and recent years have seen other activities undertaken in response to student interest and diversity. Such additions include the establishment of an International Subcommittee, Research Network Subcommittee, Anatomy and Surgical Interest Subcommittee and a satellite office at the Ipswich Campus. The UQMS is also committed to developing world health and Australian Indigenous health through the UQ United Nations Millennium Development Goals Project, a joint initiative between the UQMS and School of Medicine.

Established in 2005, Towards International Medical Equality (TIME) dedicates itself to the active support and promotion of health issues both globally and locally. TIME represents itself through its various projects which cover the most important health issues of our times including the Indigenous Health, Refugee Health, and Green Med projects. Our premier health project, the Medical Aid Project (MAP), has enjoyed great successes since its inception and has had the opportunity to donate medical supplies to needy hospitals across the globe from Peru to India to Papua New Guinea. MAP has also had the honor of being featured on local news programs.
TIME enjoys a large membership of over 500 UQ students and alumni who are not limited to the medical fields. We are always accepting new members who share a common goal of equitable health care at home and abroad.
