Overview of the UNMDG Project

The University of Queensland UNMDG Project is a joint venture of the UQ School of Medicine and the UQ Medical Society (UQMS). It brings a substantial focus on Global Health to all students of the UQ Medical Program.

As part of UQs commitment to the Universitas 21 (U21) Health Sciences Project, the initiative aims to address the Eight Millennium Development Goals by designing a relevant training module, to be incorporated into the curricula of health science training institutions around the world. The expectation is that each academic institution would tailor the training module according to their course requirements.

It will deliver teaching and training, assists medical students to have relevant clinical experiences, offer extracurricular activities and raise awareness of these issues.

Amongst other strategies, the UQ-UNMDG Project hopes to achieve this by offering to students the following:

  • Pre-electives Workshop
  • UNMDG Lecture Series
  • The UQ Global Health Conference
  • Study Tour
