In addition to the services and resources available to all students at UQ through Student Life, the Medical Student Support Team (MSST) provides dedicated support to medical students for all wellbeing needs and refers to other services as required. The MSST can assist medical students with their:

  • Pastoral needs (e.g. individualised advice and referral to other services for accommodation and financial advice)
  • Generic academic and learning needs (e.g. mentoring, time management and skills development)
  • Physical and mental health needs
  • International needs (e.g. adjusting to life in Australia)

The MSST also assists medical students with disabilities and other needs and connects medical students with the services and resources available through Student Life, including the Disability, Diversity and Inclusion team who assist with the provision of Student Access Plans, the UQ Learning Advisers who assist students to build key skills to support their learning, and the UQ Crisis and Counselling team.

The MSST plays no role in the provision of academic advice or academic progression decision making and safeguards student confidentiality.
