Ochsner Clinical School

The UQ-Ochsner Clinical School offers students a unique and exciting opportunity to gain clinical experience in the United States working within the Ochsner Health System, located in Louisiana (United States of America). 

UQ partnered with the Ochsner Health System to create an exceptional medical education program for outstanding students. The aim of the program is to allow students from the United States to benefit from an international educational experience yet still receive sufficient clinical training to meet registration requirements to practice medicine in both the US and Australia. 

The UQ-Ochsner MD program is a four year degree, of which the first two years (pre-clinical) is spent at UQ's Queensland campuses (Brisbane) and the final two years (clinical) is spent at UQ's Ochsner Clinical School (New Orleans). 

Traditional UQ Medical students who are not part of the Ochsner cohort also have the opportunity to complete a placement at the UQ-Ochsner Clinical School in all rotations.
