Ipswich Hospital is a medium-sized teaching hospital, located approximately forty kilometers from the state capital. It has the busiest Emergency Department in the state and the Australasian National Triage Scale was developed here – which was later adapted for use in the UK and Canada. This would be an excellent elective for students interested in acute care and is within easy reach of Brisbane and the Gold Coast.
Administratively, the hospital is part of the Darling Downs West Moreton Health Service and it celebrated its 150 year anniversary in 2010, after receiving funding to expand the facility and increase the number of beds and the number of theatres (there are now six).
Applications are strictly through the University of Queensland and should be made 3-8 months in advance of your placement. Please note that applications for national students are prioritised and only a limited number of international placements are available each year. Please see the UQ Medical Electives website pages for more detailed information on applying for an elective in Southern Queensland.
