This program is intended to provide clinicians the opportunity to learn the principles of clinical epidemiology and best evidence.

The program has been designed to ensure that the theory learned by participants is applied to patient-based examples and readily integrated into their day-to-day work. Please note that the Master of Science in Medicine (Clinical Epidemiology) and the Master of Medicine (Clinical Epidemiology) 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.

Target group:
The program is aimed at nurses and other health professionals who are interested in clinical epidemiology and applying the best available evidence to clinical decision making. Ideally, applicants should have some clinical practice or clinical research experience.The Masters level course is particularly aimed at the "doers" of research - those who are currently involved in or wish to become involved in their own clinical research. Doctors interested in the program should apply for entry to the Master of Medicine (Clinical Epidemiology).

Note that international students on student visas must comply with the requirements of their visa with respect to face-to-face teaching.

The aim of these programs is to provide advanced education in pain management for graduates in medicine, dentistry, nursing, physiotherapy, psychology and other disciplines involved in pain management.

Following the core curriculum of the International Association for the Study of Pain, subjects have been designed to update and expand knowledge in the basic sciences, concepts and procedures of pain assessment and management in a variety of human settings. The master's degrees are articulated with the graduate diploma and graduate certificate. That is to say, coursework undertaken for the diplomas or certificate may be counted towards credits required for the master's degrees. Conversely, someone enrolling in the master's program can be awarded a graduate certificate or graduate diploma if circumstances prevent them from completing the master's. Students who have attained an average mark of 70 in all the coursework components of the Master of Medicine/Masters of Science in Medicine may request to undertake the dissertation unit of study in which students undertake a small supervised individual project in applied pain management and write it up in a dissertation. Those who successfully complete the formal dissertation component graduate with Honours. Master's students who choose not to undertake the honours component but complete their coursework units of study with a minimum average mark of 75 per cent will be awarded pass with merit.

Target group:
Graduates in dentistry, psychology, nursing, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, and other relevant disciplines interested in a program that provides advanced education in pain management.
