A medical degree from a recognised institution
Completion of the MHSSH Clinical Medicine degree will provide graduates with the chance to contribute to the prevention and management of HIV and STIs. Graduates of this program can use their qualification to work in posts focussing on the medical management of people with, or at risk of HIV and STIs. For example, Advanced Trainees in Sexual Health Medicine at the Royal Australasian College of Physicians can use some of the units of study to contribute towards their training requirements.
General Practitioners will find this course invaluable in enhancing their current skills and helping develop a specialised practice in the fields of Sexual Health and HIV.
