Key initiatives

Junior Doctor Mentor Program

Near to Peer Cluster Support is a collaborative partnership between CQHHS Medical Education Unit and UQ Rural Clinical School.  

It aims to enhance the student, intern and junior doctor experience in Rockhampton. It supports group members to meet informally through the year by providing a program that fosters the development of social connections and the sharing of knowledge through lived experiences.

The program consists of general and specialty cluster groups of third and fourth year UQ medical students, Intern, RMO, PHO/Registrar and SMO levels from Rockhampton Hospital.

The Central Queensland Regional Training Hub has the ability to build capacity and extend the reach to outside of Rockhampton Hospital into public and private Central Queensland rural and regional facilities.
