University of Queensland and Harvard Medical International to nourish the health workforce

In an Australian first, The University of Queensland has teamed up with Harvard Medical International to deliver gold standard training to health and medical educators.

The centrepiece will be an intensive program in Brisbane in August and November, run by Harvard Medical International experts Associate Professor Elizabeth Armstrong and Associate Professor Tom Aretz.

"This is the first partnership of its kind between Harvard Medical International and any single university in Australia," Dr Louise Young of UQ's Centre for Medical Education said.

"It comes at a crucial time in Queensland and Australia, where health and medical workforce challenges are being played out in the media every day.

"Our program will improve the skills of people educating the next generation of the health workforce, as well as those upgrading the skills of established professionals.

"Busy clinicians will now be able to achieve the gold standard for medical education internationally, without having to travel to Boston.

"In Brisbane, they will be immersed in an advanced eight-day program equivalent to a full semester of postgraduate study.

"It will give them the skills to develop a higher-quality health and medical workforce," Dr Young said.

Dr Young will facilitate and co-present the program with Associate Professor Ray Peterson of the UQ School of Medicine.

While tailored for Australian conditions, the program would be based on the Harvard Macy Institute model, which has also been used by institutions in Singapore, the UK and other countries.

Dr Young said it would suit GPs, specialists, nurses, scientists, dentists, allied health professionals, pharmacists, social workers, health educators, health leaders, clinical teachers and supervisors, medical educators, health educators and science educators.

It would be suitable for people gaining the skills to teach international medical graduates and all
