The Melbourne Medical School (MMS) continues to build its significant research and teaching capacity, develop the future medical workforce, and enhance strong relationships within the biomedical precinct.

Under the leadership of Professor John Prins, the MMS is undertaking exciting new developments including a major review of the Doctor of Medicine curriculum, an emphasis on the clinician-scientist career trajectory (in partnership with affiliated hospitals, medical research institutes and foundations), and a reinvigorated focus on clinically relevant research.

About the role

We are seeking an exceptional academic with teaching and curriculum development experience to review and redevelop the Doctor of Medicine (MD), which is the Melbourne Medical School’s flagship program. The MD program delivers advanced clinical and academic training underpinned by the Melbourne Medical School’s values of commitment, integrity, compassion, respect and service to ensure students are well equipped for the challenges of medical internship.

The need for this review is predicated by the introduction in 2022 of the Melbourne MD’s rural stream which will allow a cohort of students to complete the MD course in its entirety in rural and regional Victoria. Responsive, modular, technology-enhanced learning methodologies underpin the state of the art curriculum delivery the new Melbourne MD will offer.
