Student Life

Now, more than ever, it is essential to seek out educational experiences that lead to greater awareness and appreciation of diverse perspectives. This is especially true in the ever-evolving study of medicine, which aims to solve problems fundamental to all people. As the US population ages, a shortage of qualified physicians looms ahead. The University of Queensland and Ochsner Health System have collaborated to leverage their strengths and resources to the advantage of future doctors who wish to distinguish themselves in the US Residency Match and who wish to be recognized for their social accountability, critical scientific thinking and drive to be global leaders in health care.

Studying medicine at UQO offers opportunities that are far removed from a lecture theatre or hospital ward. We believe in the value of work-life balance and holistic student well-being. Have a flair for the dramatic? Love team sports? Interested in (more) travel? Our students are engaged and supported in activities and endeavors as diverse and unique as they are, because we believe well balanced doctors are better doctors.
