The University of Sydney has developed a new educational offering to help clinicians and healthcare professionals stay abreast of the latest evidence and technology in specialised fields within medicine and public health.

Sydney Professional Certificates are carefully curated postgraduate courses comprising of two units of study. Given their short duration, they are perfect for time-poor practitioners and senior healthcare professionals wanting to undertake study in specialised areas without commiting to a more extensive postgraduate degree.
