Master of Medicine - Information for current students


Postgraduate Coursework

Welcome to the Sydney Medical School at the University of Sydney, and to your study in Paediatric Medicine. This information is aimed at making your transition to online study as efficient and as problem free as possible.

It is important for you to have the correct settings on your computer so that you can access all the learning material and tools available to you in your eLearning site "Canvas".

We suggest that you familiarise yourself with Canvas, as you will find all the information you need at this site: including all of your computer requirements, how to Log on etc.

To login to your Unit of Study, you need a password and your UniKey Login name. Your UniKey will be emailed to you with instructions on how to set your password. If you have not received your password by the Wednesday before Semester starts, you should immediately call the ICT helpdesk (Information and Communications Technology) on (61 2) 9351 2000. You should check to make sure that you can access all your eLearning sites via

Within each Paediatric Unit of Study, there is an Orientation section. This will help to familiarise you with the unit and will explain what is expected of you.

Late changes to Units of Study (that is, more than a week after commencement of the Semester) are not recommended. It would be necessary to catch up on all tasks already undertaken in the Unit and this would significantly impact on your learning.

We hope that you enjoy this learning experience.
