This course was launched in 2017 and is delivered jointly by the University of Sydney and the University of Melbourne. This collaboration brings a unique breadth of teaching and clinical experience to the course.
You will have the opportunity to study at a basic or advanced level in most of the medical specialties, and you can tailor your degree to your needs and interests. The basic units are aimed at the level of knowledge expected for the Royal Australasian College of Physicians (RACP) Basic Training examination. The advanced units provide an introduction to subspecialty practice. A broad range of elective units are also offered, including units in clinical teaching, statistical analysis, grant writing and other research skills.How will you learn?
Flexible, case-based learning will enable you to maximise the learning opportunities in your clinical exposure. The coursework is delivered online except for the capstone unit which provides an intensive face-to-face learning opportunity to consolidate and reinforce your knowledge. The largely online nature of the course means that you can continue your educational program during rotation to suburban, rural and regional hospitals.Who should study this course?
This course is for medical graduates who are working in an Australian or New Zealand jurisdiction and undertaking training with the Royal Australasian College of Physicians. It will also be useful for trainees and established clinicians working in emergency medicine, intensive care medicine or adult general practice.
