It also creates opportunities to seamlessly transition to research candidature.
This unique Program enables students to specialise in one of five Pathways: Clinical Medicine, Nursing, Counselling (Sexology/Sex Therapy), Laboratory, and Public Health. This Program is of interest to a range of students, from those who already work in HIV, STIs and Sexual Health / Sexology, as well as those who want to develop expertise in the field.
Units of study provide professionals with foundational competence in medicine, nursing, laboratory, sexual health counselling/sex therapy and public health Pathways. An additional wide range of electives creates opportunities for candidates to further explore related areas of interest. In addition, the inter-professional structure encourages students to develop effective multidisciplinary collaborative approaches and prepares them for work in a wide variety of healthcare settings.
Our Postgraduate Program in HIV, STIs and Sexual Health is designed to improve knowledge and skills in sexual health and apply these in practice in their respective professional domains.
