Overview

Clinical neurophysiology is a broad discipline, encompassing diagnostic services for patients presenting with neurological dysfunction, systemic diseases and critical illnesses, as well as the provision of intraoperative monitoring of the nervous system during at-risk surgical procedures.

This course is designed for anaesthetists, neurologists, neurophysiology scientists and technologists, and trainees in these areas.

The Master of Medicine and the Master of Science in Medicine have different admission requirements. Only medical graduates (ie those with a recognised medical degree) may be admitted to the Master of Medicine while non-medical graduates may be admitted to the Master of Science in Medicine.

Course outcomes

This coursework will provide graduates with a sound understanding of the theoretical principles and practical application of the commonly employed techniques in clinical neurophysiology. Graduates will develop the knowledge and skills to work in diagnostic and perioperative settings.

Course information

The courses aim to provide structured educational programs in neurophysiological monitoring to complement experiential learning in the workplace. This is the only postgraduate coursework of its kind in Australia.

The program is delivered largely online with most units of study incorporating short intensive face-to-face teaching sessions held in Sydney. CLNP5001 Basic Sciences in Clinical Neurophysiology and CLNP5005 Neuromonitoring in Anaesthesia are fully online.
