Interprofessional education and learning facilities

Interprofessional education

We prepare our future health professionals to work collaboratively in patient-centred teamwork environments within the Australian health system, to ultimately improve patient health outcomes. We have a suite of Interprofessional Health Education units that feed into courses linked to the School and across the Faculty.

The HealthFusion Team Challenge (HFTC) is Australia’s premier interprofessional education event for tertiary Health Sciences students that is led by the School of Clinical Sciences. This internationally recognised, award-winning competition is designed to foster skills in interprofessional teamwork and collaboration in a way that is impactful, memorable and fun. Our QUT team won the 2019 Australian HealthFusion Team Challenge!

Learning facilities

Our students learn in specialised, purpose-built clinical simulation spaces that are fully equipped with digital technology and the latest state-of-the-art learning platforms. These include world-leading 3D virtual immersion training facilities and physical spaces that simulate real-world environments.

Real-world experience is also gained in the QUT Health Clinics. Our Podiatry Clinic provides high-quality patient care to the community with general foot care and specialist podiatric treatment, and also functions as a specialist clinical education facility for students, working under the supervision of qualified and registered podiatrists.
