Across our clinical sites, we are lucky enough to have over 3000 doctors and other clinicians who volunteer their time and expertise in order to provide you, our students, with invaluable knowledge and support.

We are asking Phase I and Phase II UQ Medicine students to nominate a clinical teacher who you believe is worthy of receiving a Medical Program Teaching Award.

Take the a few minutes to acknowledge their work and thank them for their tireless effort by nominating them online or via one of our paper nomination forms found at each of our Clinical Unit sites.

Nominations close 5:00pm Friday 27th September and local Clinical Unit winners will be eligible to win the 2019 John Pearn medallion which is presented to the overall winner for teaching excellence.
