The Faculty of Medicine has established eight Mayne Academies to build on the work of our clinical disciplines. Mayne Academies are responsible for promoting research and education, supporting students and staff, and community engagement in their respective clinical discipline(s).

The Head of each Mayne Academy has specific responsibility for:

  • Contributing to curriculum improvement and helping drive consistent course offerings across Clinical Schools/Units.
  • Promoting medical research and supporting the delivery of the Faculty research strategy.
  • Providing support and career advice to medical students, and assisting with the recruitment of medical student personal advisors and career mentors.
  • Recruiting, mentoring and engaging Academic Title Holders in teaching, student support and research.
  • Engaging specialist medical colleges and alumni with Faculty of Medicine teaching and research, and advocating for UQ in their respective healthcare organisations and communities.

Heads of Academy, who are also professors, are accorded the title of “Mayne Professor” in their respective discipline. They also line-manage the relevant MD Phase 2 course coordinator.
