What is the Interprofessional Clinic?
The JCU Health Interprofessional Clinic works in collaboration with community based organisations to provide much needed services. Health professionals, students and discipline staff work in an Interprofessional team based setting to provide patient centred care in a clinical educational environment.
What is an Interprofessional Team?
An interprofessional team means that your health professionals work together to discuss and understand your health care needs. This approach allows you as the patient to tell your story once and, together, the team of health professionals will work to develop your treatment plan, allowing improved service and quality of care.

Neurology – Dr Mike Boggild
Dr Mike Boggild is a Neurologist, specialising in Neurology, with special interests in Multiple Sclerosis and related disorders.
He holds a MBChB MRCP MD FRACP.
Dr Boggild graduated from Leicester University in 1986 and went on to complete Neurology training in the UK, gaining additional experience at a number of centres in the United States in 1996. He then spent fifteen years as Consultant Neurologist at The Walton Centre for Neurosciences in Liverpool, UK, sub-specialising in the diagnosis and management of multiple sclerosis and related disorders. Having relocated to Townsville in early 2012 in search of a new challenge, he sees the potential to use his experience to develop an efficient and responsive Neurology service in regional North Queensland along with the opportunity to apply his sub-speciality interest in multiple sclerosis, experience which saw the Walton MS Service acknowledged as ‘Best Comprehensive MS Service in the UK’ and the subsequent establishment in Liverpool of the UK diagnostic service for neuromyelitis optica. He has a clinical research background, with over 50 peer reviewed publications and has already been an invited speaker at the Australia and New Zealand Association of Neurologists (ANZAN) meeting as well as being invited onto several national MS advisory boards. In addition to his sub-specialty interest he has extensive general neurology experience, having been the sole visiting neurologist to the Isle of Man (think motorbike races and tax haven) from 1997-2011 and is pleased to see adult patients across the full range of neurological disorders. Dr Boggild and Nurse Specialist Ms Sharon Gray are on site to see patients every second Friday.
