Rural Clinical Schools

The University of Queensland Rural Clinical School (UQRCS) is the regional base for the delivery of the clinical phase of the Doctor of Medicine program.

We are part of a national network of Rural Clinical Schools managed by Universities and funded by the Australian Government to improve the regional and rural workforce.

UQRCS offers an exceptional clinical training experience in a rural context.  Our UQ Health Sciences Learning and Discovery Centres at each of our four academic sites house state of the art training facilities, including Simulated Learning Environments (SLEs) that are fully equipped with high fidelity manikins and task trainers. Students also have access to extensive online and print resources in our on-site libraries as well as a resident UQRCS librarian.

At UQRCS you will be able to develop your clinical training skills in a safe environment in fully interactive spaces that are designed to run real time simulations and scenarios.

Our clinical training program extends across teaching hospitals, specialist consulting rooms, general practices and various community settings across a network of towns throughout rural and regional Queensland.

Low consultant to student rations offer exemplary learning opportunities.
