Health and Medical Sciences

CQUniversity’s health and medical sciences programs have been developed to meet the ever increasing needs of our communities both here in Australia and for the wider global audience.

A key feature in the majority of CQUniversity’s health and medical science programs is workplace-integrated learning or learning on the job. Students are required to complete course undertakings in real-life workplaces, allowing them to put learning directly into practice. This hands-on, project-based learning is a key reason as to why CQUniversity graduates are highly sought after by employers. 

Quality on-campus facilities ensure learning is delivered ‘in context’, taught in a similar setting to that of a real-world situation. New facilities including state-of-the-art technology for fitness and body function testing offer exercise and sport science students sophisticated training. Nursing students have access to fully equipped labs that replicate a real-life hospital ward, while medical imaging and medical sonography are taught from new purpose built multi-million dollar labs. The addition of the new  Allied Health Clinic at CQUniversity Rockhampton will provide clinical experience sto students studying our new suite of Allied Health programs.

CQUniversity’s Health and Medical Sciences academic staff are at the forefront of their respective fields, often still contributing to and working within industry and the community. Lecturers have a strong teaching and learning ethos and are committed to delivering quality learning experiences. CQUniversity’s Dr Kerry Reid-Searl has pioneered a world-first teaching technique soon to be commercially released called ‘Mask-Ed’, which involves latex disguises worn by lecturers to help simulate real-life clinical scenarios in nursing-related practical sessions.
