The University of Queensland Medical School and Ochsner – A Teaching Partnership for the Future

Our position as a teaching facility was heightened in April of 2009 when Ochsner and the University of Queensland Medical School in Australia joined as partners and announced the University of Queensland School of Medicine Clinical School at Ochsner. Through this unprecedented alliance, U.S. medical students train for two years in Brisbane, Australia and participate in two years of clinical training at Ochsner.
