The Master of Medicine (Internal Medicine) is a practical and clinically focused course that will refine your ability to diagnose, investigate and manage common and important diseases in adults. It will guide your care of patients and will be readily integrated into your daily clinical work.
This course was launched in 2017 and is delivered jointly by the University of Sydney and the University of Melbourne. This collaboration brings a unique breadth of teaching and clinical experience to the course and allows you to pursue areas of future practice or interest. The course will also be useful if you work in emergency medicine, intensive care medicine or adult general practice and want to improve your skills in internal medicine.
You will have the opportunity to study at a basic or advanced level in most of the medical specialties, and you can tailor your degree to your needs and interests. The advanced units provide an introduction to subspecialty practice. We offer a broad range of elective units, including units in clinical teaching, statistical analysis, grant writing and other research skills. Coursework is delivered online except for the capstone unit which provides an intensive face-to-face learning opportunity to consolidate and reinforce your knowledge.
Graduates of this course will acquire the knowledge and skills tested in the Royal Australasian College of Physicians Adult Medicine Basic Training examinations, as well as being able to pursue areas of future practice or interest.
Flexible case 'based learning will enable you to maximise the learning opportunities in your clinical exposure. The largely online nature of the course means that you can continue your educational program during rotation to suburban, rural and regional hospitals.
