Overview of the Project
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
