Teaching Overview


  • Since the inception of the Graduate Medicine program within the University of Wollongong in 2007, A/Prof Judy Mullan has successfully lead her team in developing and implementing an innovative course-wide program, receiving national and international acclaim. A thorough consideration of desired student learning outcomes and graduate attributes, curriculum design and carefully planned assessment tasks within the RCA program, have met with positive evaluations from external peer reviewers, the Australian Medical Council (AMC) and the medical students. Her teaching leadership experience is also demonstrated in her previous roles which involved leading, developing and establishing other UOW programs, such as the Bachelor of Health Sciences program in 2007; the Graduate Medicine Master’s program in 2010; and the Pre-Med, Science and Health program in 2016. In addition to these roles, she has a personal commitment to continuing professional development of others, which is why she is regularly involved in providing professional development workshops/seminars for multidisciplinary health professionals (e.g., pharmacists, GPs & Psychiatry registrars). Her commitment to excellence in teaching and learning is also demonstrated by her high teacher ratings (average 5.6/6), her teaching related peer-reviewed publications and her national/international teaching related conference/workshop presentations.
