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 focusses 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 oversee and coordinate a broad range of operational functions within the Rural Clinical School site, including recruitment and supervision of student coordination staff, delivering frontline administration and operational support for the MBBS/MD (bachelor of Surgery and Doctor of Medicine) Program and its stakeholders.  The Team Leader will contribute to an optimal learning and living experience for medical students undertaking their clinical training with the Rural Clinical School.  The Team Leader is the key point of contact for staff members located within the relevant site.
