Faculty of Medicine

The University of Queensland’s Faculty of Medicine is an internationally recognised provider of world-class education and research. The research-intensive Faculty has a gross budget of almost $300 million, employs approximately 1000 continuing and fixed-term staff (headcount), has a community of more than 4000 non-salaried academic appointees and around 3200 students (headcount).

The Faculty of Medicine offers Australia’s largest medical degree program for graduates and school-leavers. Undergraduate and postgraduate programs are available in the disciplines of Medicine, Health Sciences, E-Health, Mental Health, Biomedical Sciences and Public Health. 

The Faculty possesses enormous strengths spanning research, teaching, industry engagement and clinical practice in disciplines ranging from the basic sciences, biomedical research and development, to clinical trials and public health. Research projects within the Faculty have already led to discoveries with far-reaching social and economic impacts, including the revolutionary Gardasil (TM) vaccine for cervical cancer (Professor Ian Frazer) and a drug discovery EMA401 (Professor Maree Smith), a first-in-class oral treatment for chronic pain which through Spinafex Pharmaceuticals led to Australia’s largest biotechnology commercialisation deal. Faculty staff include three highly cited authors, one Fellow of the Royal Society (FRS), three Fellows of the Australian Academy of Science (FAA) and 12 Fellows of the Academy of Health and Medical Sciences (AAHMS).  The Faculty is a core member of Brisbane Diamantina Health Partners, the Brisbane-wide academic health science system.

Educational offerings in biomedical sciences, medicine and public health are informed and supported by research activity across a range of fundamental and clinical areas of importance including recognised strengths in cancer, skin diseases, brain and mental health, maternal and child health and genomics. Cutting-edge facilities such as the Herston Imaging Research Facility (HIRF), the UQ Centre for Clinical Research (UQCCR), our laboratories in the Translational Research Institute (TRI) and the new Centre for Children’s Health Research (CCHR) enable outstanding research outcomes and sharpen our understanding of cancer, autoimmunity, mental disorders, infectious diseases and neurological disease.  Further details are available at

The University of Queensland Rural Clinical School

The University of Queensland Rural Clinical School (UQRCS) envisages securing a self-sustaining medical workforce for regional Queensland through excellence in medical education, research and community service.  With a footprint encompassing the greater part of central and western regional Queensland, the School comprises four clinical sites – Rockhampton, Bundaberg, Hervey Bay and Toowoomba. Significant investment in people and training infrastructure at each site provides the operational focus for a network of smaller clinical training locations in host communities across the state.  With a recurrent budget of up to $9 million per annum provided through the Australian Government’s Multidisciplinary Rural Health Training (MRHT) program and a capital works portfolio in excess of $20 million, UQRCS is a substantial enterprise. 

The Clinical School is the rural base for the delivery of the UQ medical program. There is a long tradition of success working in partnership with healthcare systems and service providers to train senior (Phase 2) medical students.  Each year, more than 500 medical students engage with the rural experience through a range of long term (1-2 years) placements or shorter term (4-16 weeks) learning opportunities.

The role

The primary purpose of the position is to lead the development and delivery of experiential learning for undergraduate medical students that develop their clinical skills and competencies. There will be a particular focus on simulation and team-based learning delivered in purpose-built facilities at UQRCS Toowoomba.

The Clinical Lead Educator will teach into clinical and simulation sessions but key roles and responsibilities will be to lead, organise and develop programs in consultation with Discipline Leads and the Clinical Director.  This position will ensure the highest quality training and innovation in Clinical Skills and Simulation learning activities and clinical competency assessments.

The person

This is an exceptional opportunity for a clinician with expertise in using simulation techniques for clinical skills training. Applicants must possess a degree in health science and eligibility for AHPRA registration, along with experience in a clinical procedural area. The successful applicants will have demonstrated experience in teaching students in a clinical and/or simulated environment.
