Medical Student Placement

The Queensland Eye Institute is a clinical teaching site of the Faculty of Medicine at The University of Queensland.  Each year, students attend QEI for their ophthalmology rotations as a part of their 4th year surgical specialty rotations.

The Queensland Eye Institute has sponsored a free medical student education program called “Ophthalmology for Medical Students”.

This project aims to provide thorough, free and widely available teaching to medical students throughout the world.
