For almost 15 years, The University of Queensland Medical School and Ochsner Health have worked together to train future physician leaders. We have developed a unique pathway which, enables students to train across two continents, leveraging the resources of two world class institutions.
Our Doctor of Medicine Program:
As a UQ-Ochsner MD student, you’ll spend your first 2 years of the medical program in Brisbane, Australia. During Years 3 and 4 you’ll gain hands on clinical practice at the Ochsner Health in Louisiana, USA. You'll learn from clinical experts and complete your clinical preparation and placements at world-class facilities.
Our graduates secure residencies in highly competitive programs, at leading hospitals across the US. Our 2023 class secured a match rate of 96 per cent – a testament to the quality of students entering our program as well as the curriculum taught by our faculty in both Queensland and Louisiana.
