The College of Medicine and Dentistry was established in Townsville, Queensland, in 2000 and has grown to meet the demand for health professionals skilled in a range of disciplines. Dentistry was added to the College’s suite of courses from 2009 and is one of only three dental schools in Australia located outside a capital city. In 2014, Pharmacy became part of the College and boasts a modern, integrated curriculum delivered by lectures, tutorials, workshops and practical placements. In addition to the three headline programs, the College has the only Physician Assistant training program in Australia, which graduated its first cohort in 2014.

Our undergraduate courses in Medicine, Dentistry, Pharmacy and Physician Assistant practice are full professional programs that equip students with real skills, a strong foundation of science and a desire to make a difference. Our professional graduates have a reputation for being work-ready, committed professionals who are ready for a challenge.
