The future of paediatric medicine

About UQPaeds


UQPaeds is a student run organisation comprised primarily of University of Queensland medical students passionate about a future in paediatric medicine. Our society also welcomes junior doctors, faculty of medicine alumni and students in related healthcare fields interested in paediatrics.


The program hopes to foster unique relationships between medical students and various local paediatricians and paediatric specialists. Our goal is to encourage, facilitate and inspire medical students to explore a career in paediatric medicine.


UQPaeds will host various paediatric networking events providing the opportunity to meet your future mentors, facilitate paediatric research opportunities & connect members to paediatric placement opportunities. We also hope to be a hub for career pathway advice, run fundraisers for local causes with shared values, host a paediatric journal club & offer paediatric focused education sessions among other opportunities.

There are 5 main branches of UQPaeds:

-       Research & Journal Club Opportunities
