About this course

Clinical Epidemiology is the science behind good clinical research and evidence-based clinical decision making. Our programs are designed to develop both clinical researchers and practitioners by teaching the skills needed to generate high quality clinical research, as well as the skills to locate, appraise, interpret and apply the best research evidence to patient care. This program will also develop the research skills required by many clinical training positions. The course is delivered in a flexible format, with face-to-face, online or block-mode delivery options, suitable for busy professionals.

The Graduate Certificate in Clinical Epidemiology is embedded within the Master of Medicine (Clinical Epidemioogy) or Master of Science in Medicine (Clinical Epidemiology). The master's degrees build on concepts learned during the graduate diploma and graduate certificate and provide additional training in research methodology. You may choose to complete the graduate diploma, or use it as a pathway into a master's degree in the discipline, subject to meeting admission requirements.
