The University of Queensland Rural Clinical School

The Rural Clinical School (UQRCS) envisions 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. Each site, where there is significant investment in people and training infrastructure, 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 $9m per annum provided through the Australian Government’s Rural Health Multidisciplinary Training (RHMT) program and a capital works portfolio in excess of $20m, UQRCS is a substantial enterprise.

A rapidly expanding research profile focuses on clinical research and epidemiology/population health. There is a significant component of Indigenous health research, particularly programs designed to translate and improve health outcomes amongst the Indigenous population. Research productivity is evidence through a successful track record in attracting competitive funding from agencies such as the NHMRC  and, in 2015, at least 51 peer-reviewed manuscripts published in journals varying from ‘Rural and Remote Health’ to ‘Nature Genetics’.

The role

The successful appointee will contribute to optimal learning and living experiences for medical students attached to UQRCS in Toowoomba through the delivery of high quality, client-focused student and academic administrative and support services.

This position is based in Toowoomba.

The person

Applicants should possess a degree and, ideally, previous experience in student and academic administration. The successful applicant will have strong organisational skills, experience in the use of a range of computer packages, in addition to excellent communication skills and the ability to prioritise own workload and meet deadlines. The appointee will require the ability to foster a client service working environment and build and maintain rapport with a range of stakeholders including academic and clinical staff as well as students. Demonstrated ability to deal with sensitive issues, maintain confidentiality and to provide impartial advice is essential.

This is a job share arrangement and the successful application will need excellent time-management, organisation and collaboration skills.
