For students wishing to engage in research projects or activities, follow the steps below. 

Step 1. Find a research project

Students in the Medicine Program  can find a research project or activity via a searchable database at 'Find a Project'. Options include volunteer/extra-curricular, PhD, MPhil, Honours and short-term projects.

Other research projects or activities can be found throughout the Faculty via:

For further information visit 'Research in your Medical Degree'.

Step 2. Complete the Student Volunteering Research Form

Once you have arranged research with a supervisor and before you begin, all students doing voluntary research must complete a Student Volunteering Experience Research Form. Download the appropriate form below.

Note: ensure you download the most recent version below - older forms will not be accepted.

Step 3. Register your research

You must register any research activity or project you are involved in during your medical degree. Whether it is research at UQ or elsewhere - it all matters. Especially if you are doing voluntary (extracurricular) research. By registering your research, we can officially acknowledge and recognise these activities as part of your medical program and you will receive a certificate when you graduate. It only takes a couple of minutes.
