UQ O&G WELCOMES YOU
The Future of Health
UQ O&G is a student-run interest group dedicated to promoting obstetric and gynaecological health and reproductive justice across the University of Queensland community. Our group aims to provide a platform for students to engage in more O&G content outside of the UQ curriculum and connect students with doctors and other allied health professionals in the field.
Since the group’s inception in 2020, UQ O&G has been able to achieve these goals by hosting a variety of events within each of the group’s branches. These include seminars and fundraisers within the Advocacy branch, journal clubs and an OSCE preparation workshop within the Academic branch, and a large networking gala each year within our networking branch (on top of other fun socials!). As the field of obstetrics and gynaecology is ever evolving, we are always open to new ideas and cannot wait to welcome you to our club! If you have any questions about UQ O&G, please don’t hesitate to contact us!
UQ O&G acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the land on which we work and study, the Jagera and Turrbul peoples of the city of Meanjin, and pay our respects to elders past, present, and emerging. As healthcare providers, we have a lot to learn from Indigenous healthcare practices, and Indigenous ways of being. Caring for the country on which we live, and caring for the people with whom we live, needs to be led by the first custodians of this land. We acknowledge that sovereignty was never ceded and stand alongside community in the fight towards self-determination.
We would also like to acknowledge the many people who do not identify as women who still have reproductive and gynaecological healthcare needs. We recognise the marginalisation they have faced while navigating an area of healthcare designed for cisgender women, and commit to making the field of Obstetrics and Gynaecology a safe and inclusive space for all people.
