School of Clinical Medicine

Supporting the teaching of medical and research students

The School of Clinical Medicine is organised around nine clinical units.

As well as the School of Clinical Medicine, students can choose to undertake clinical training at the School of Rural Health and the Oshsner Clinical School.

The clinical schools are where students go to undertake clinical training rotations in Phase 2 (years 3 and 4) of the Medical Program. Each clinical school is led by a senior academic clinician to ensure our teaching has a strong presence in each of the principal teaching hospitals and key teaching sites.

Within our clinical schools, teaching and research is supported by more than 3800 Academic Title Holders - these are hospital and clinic-based health professionals who supervise medical and research students, mentor up-and-coming junior doctors and researchers, and take on hours of teaching and research activity in their own time to find better ways of treating patients.
