Students enrolled at the Ochsner Clinical School are eligible and encouraged to participate in all the research options available in the UQ Medical Program. This could include a Higher Degree by Research (HDR), Master of Philosophy (MPhil) which is equivalent to a Master of Science (MSc) in the US, or a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree.

Ochsner students not wishing to enrol in an HDR are encouraged to participate in Extended Research on an extra-curricular/volunteer basis during MD Years 3 and 4 at the OCS in New Orleans.   

Summer Research Scholarships are also a good option for Ochsner students and may be undertaken in Years 1–4, while in Brisbane or at the OCS in New Orleans.  

Please read the Ochsner student FAQs for specific information.
