Undertaking the Master of Clinical Research Methods at Monash University, a Group of Eight University and one that is ranked in the Top 100 Universities worldwide, will give you the knowledge and skills necessary to work in the broad domain of clinical research and a postgraduate qualification that is recognised around the world.
The course is offered by Monash University’s School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine. It is the only one of its kind in Victoria and facilitates the development of a range of analytical and communication skills necessary to work in the broad domain of clinical research and practice.
The program will enable you to develop a detailed understanding of biostatistics, epidemiology, data management, clinical trials, clinical measurement, ethical practice, systematic reviews and meta-analysis, and critical appraisal of the scientific literature for application in research and clinical practice.
To ensure depth of understanding, as well as providing you with a valuable opportunity to innovate within your particular fields, you will have the option to develop your own research protocol and undertake a clinical epidemiological project.
The course structure and flexibility assists you to extend, integrate and apply your core knowledge and skills with depth across the broad domain of clinical practice and research, something that students want in a highly competitive industry and employers have identified as important.
Taught by some of Australia’s leading clinical academics, the curriculum is designed for students seeking to balance the demands of a busy workflow with the need to engage in further professional development.
Structured around a mixture of online educational delivery and face-to-face block days, the course provides you with a level of detailed engagement that is also flexible. Block days are delivered at the Monash campus located at The Alfred Hospital, a major teaching hospital in inner-city Melbourne.
You can undertake this course full-time or part-time. Assessment is based on written assignments, examinations, class participation, web-based tasks and the optional supervised research project.
IMPORTANT: This course is only available to international students in ‘on-campus’ mode. Please note that ‘on-campus’ mode comprises a mix of online learning and on-site teaching.
For most units, the majority of contact hours are facilitated through the University’s online learning platform, with additional face-to-face contact during designated study days at Public Health & Preventive Medicine at the Alfred Medical Research and Education Precinct (AMREP) in Melbourne.
The Intensive Master of Clinical Embryology is internationally renowned as a training program for all assisted reproductive technologies (ART), producing high calibre embryologists. On completion of this course, you will have developed the specialised knowledge and practical skills needed to work in, and manage, human ART clinics.
The course is offered both on-campus (one year full time) and off-campus (restricted entry, full or part-time) to domestic and international students.
Your studies will include the foundations of mammalian embryology, detailed assessment of all infertility treatment strategies and the theoretical basis behind embryo production, embryo selection and cryopreservation, with a focus on all current and future technologies associated with ART. You will also study units dedicated to Total Quality Management, Preimplantation Diagnosis and Ethics.
Throughout the course you will acquire all the practical skills required of andrologists and embryologists, from sperm and embryo handling and assessment, to in vitro fertilisation techniques and cryopreservation techniques, including vitrification of gametes and embryos. You will finish the year learning ICSI and biopsy procedures.
While learning the practical skills, you are also given opportunities to visit ART clinics and attend ART industry conferences within Australia and internationally. You will engage in research projects that are designed to enhance your practical and research skills, while assessments throughout the year are designed to measure your competency in theoretical, practical and research disciplines.
