The only course of its kind in Australasia, the Master of Medicine (Critical Care Medicine) is an innovative degree that has been designed by critical care clinicians for doctors interested in emergency medicine, anaesthetics and intensive care medicine.
As a critical care medicine student, you will learn from leading clinicians and academics from our teaching hospitals and the University as you develop the skills to become a well-rounded, knowledgeable and analytical clinician.
Designed for busy working doctors, this course is mainly taught online, with some units including intensive face-to-face teaching sessions.
Coursework is provided in anatomy, pathology, physiology and pharmacology to help you prepare for the college barrier examinations, such as those offered by ANZCA, ACEM and CICM.
The structure of this course also allows you to tailor your study to your area of interest. For example, in emergency medicine, you can develop your knowledge and skills in retrieval medicine and clinical reasoning and communication. In anaesthetics and intensive care medicine, you can pursue highly coveted expertise in neuromonitoring and pain management. Other subjects include ultrasound, simulation and cardiology. In addition, you will gain insights and understanding into the key research that informs this area of practice.
This course will also help you fulfil college training requirements, such as for the Scholar Role for the Australian and New Zealand College of Anaesthetists (ANZCA) and the research requirements for the Australian College of Emergency Medicine (ACEM).
