Master of Medicine (Sexually Transmitted Diseases/HIV) and Master of Philosophy


Course Description

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 specialisein the infectious deisease aspects of sexual health, 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.
