“Potential” for a med school at CQU says VC

Scott Bowman starts his exit as VC at CQU (below) in the same way he arrived – proposing new ideas. He will brief local media this morning on “potential” for a medical school on the university’s Rockhampton campus, (CCM heard this was coming, last Friday). That he will be joined by regional Queensland Health chief executive Steve Williamson surely makes the “potential” more probable than possible. It’s another challenge for federal minister for rural health Bridget McKenzie, who has to deal with Murray Darling med school proposal that will not die (CMM, Wednesday) and another idea La Trobe U at Bendigo (below).
