Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) present a major public health concern in both developed and developing countries, with millions of adults and children becoming infected with Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and other STDs each year. The program provides high levels of knowledge and skill in the understanding and control of STDs including HIV infection. An emphasis is placed on the importance of clinical, laboratory, public health and behavioural aspects of sexual health. The STD/HIV courses specialise in the infectious disease aspects of sexual heatlh, and provide a sound basis of knowledge for those in a wide range of sexual health related professions. It is of particular benefit to those wishing to improve their scientific understanding of the discipline

The program aims to provide an opportunity to achieve high levels of knowledge and skill in the understanding and control of sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) including Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infection.

Please note that the Master of Medicine (Sexually Transmitted Diseases/HIV) and the Master of Science in Medicine (Sexually Transmitted Diseases/HIV) are essentially the same program but with different admission requirements. Only medical graduates (i.e. those with an MB BS) may be admitted to the Master of Medicine while non-medical graduates may be admitted to the Master of Science in Medicine. Students enrolled in the Master of Medicine and Master of Science in Medicine follow the same program of study (with the exception, in some cases, of practical work), with the only distinction between them being the title of the degree they are awarded on completion. To qualify for the degree, candidates must complete coursework and clinical or laboratory assignments equivalent to 48 credit points. The coursework and clinical or laboratory assignments are undertaken over one year. Students are required to attend lectures and tutorials and undertake field visits to laboratory and clinical areas. Lectures and tutorials are held during week days. Supporting online materials will also be available. Assessment is by written examination, oral presentations, written assignments, multiple choice examinations, online discussions and placement reports.

This coursework master's degree is also available as a double degree combined with the Master of Philosophy (course code KC083), a master's degree by research. Students first complete the coursework master's degree and if they obtain a weighted average mark of at last 65 per cent across all 48 CP of coursework units and achieve at least 65 per cent in the unit of study SEXH5220 Thesis Development in STD/HIV, then they may progress to the Master of Philosophy. Students who apply to undertake the double degree will also be required to have found a supervisor for their research degree and to submit a full research proposal for their Master of Philosophy by the end of the second semester of enrolment in thecoursework master's degree
