Research & Teaching

Macquarie Respiratory and Sleep is significantly involved in the new Macquarie University Doctor of Medicine program.

This is a degree offered in our Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, and had its first intake of students in 2018. The course is an innovative program with international placements and administered within MQ Health – an academic health sciences centre that integrates patient-centred clinical care, teaching and research.

Our physicians are teachers and academics within this faculty, and are involved in both the day to day aspects of teaching as well as overall program direction and curriculum development. Students gain experience by attachments to our clinics, as well as ward and operating theatre placements. We are also involved in formal lectures, symposiums as well as bedside tutorials.
