Overview

The metabolic health program has been developed to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of the aetiology, diagnosis and multidisciplinary treatment of metabolic diseases. Students will gain essential applied knowledge to manage diabetes, obesity and associated cardiovascular complications in the general population as well as in special groups, such as pregnant women.

The program is suitable for medical practitioners working or planning to work in primary care, emergency medicine, paediatrics, endocrinology and general medicine. Some of the coursework is also suited to pharmacists, nurses and other allied health professionals with an interest in the field.

The Master of Medicine and the Master of Science in Medicine have different admission requirements. Graduates with a recognised medical degree may be admitted to the Master of Medicine, and graduates with a health or science-related degree and relevant work experience may be admitted to the Master of Science in Medicine.
