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 program has two pathways (see below for details). The intraoperative monitoring pathway is designed for trainee and experienced anaesthetists, surgeons, and neurophysiology scientists and technologists. The other pathway is suited to those working in a neurophysiology laboratory/ clinic and is suited to scientists, trainee scientists and experienced and trainee neurologists.

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 a structured educational program in neurophysiological monitoring to complement experiential learning in the workplace. This is the only postgraduate coursework of its kind in Australasia.

The program is delivered largely online with most units of study incorporating compulsory short intensive face-to-face teaching workshops held in Sydney. CLNP5001 Basic Sciences in Clinical Neurophysiology, CLNP5005 Neuromonitoring in Anaesthesia and CLNP5008 Applied Clinical Neurophysiology are fully online.
