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.

Over the past decade there have been a number of unanticipated adverse health events such as the 2003 SARS outbreak, the 2007 Australian equine influenza outbreak, the 2008 melamine contamination of Chinese infant formula, the 2009 influenza pandemic, and the 2014 Ebola outbreak to name but a few.

Over the past decade there have been a number of unanticipated adverse health events such as the 2003 SARS outbreak, the 2007 Australian equine influenza outbreak, the 2008 melamine contamination of Chinese infant formula, the 2009 influenza pandemic, and the 2014 Ebola outbreak to name but a few. New pathogens continue to emerge and successfully cross species’ barriers to cause new disease in humans (e.g. MERS). At the same time changes to food production and consumption are creating new risks to the food chain, while scientific breakthroughs now allow for the creation of entirely new organisms not found in the natural world, prompting new security concerns and the need for new regulatory arrangements and oversight mechanisms. As several of these events have already demonstrated, the interrelationship between animal, human and plant disease-related events in a highly interconnected world are both multifaceted and complex, with potential implications for national economies, international trade, national and international security, social cohesion, political stability, and food security.

The Marie Bashir Institute for Infectious Diseases and Biosecurity (MBI) based at the University of Sydney is committed to meeting this need by helping train a new generation of professionals develop the knowledge and skills to manage complex human, animal and plant health emergencies and the multisectoral impacts that can arise from such events.

The MHlthSec offers students an intellectually rigorous, flexible, interdisciplinary program of study and research that provides a pathway for those who are either interested in pursuing a career in health security, or are already working in roles with responsibility for dealing with health-related crises. In addition, the degree will also contain study options that provide a pathway for entry into higher degrees by research (e.g. PhD), allowing students to pursue a career in research and/or academia.

In the future, pharmacists in the primary care setting are going to become increasingly involved in the care of patients through multidisciplinary teams. The setting of practice of pharmacy will expand from the community pharmacist to include medical clinics and the patient’s home. The role of pharmacists as prescribers is currently under investigation.

Within hospitals, pharmacists provide a diverse range of services from drug distribution and dispensing, provision of drug information and education, through to ward-based clinical pharmacy services where they participate in patient care as part of a team. Hospital pharmacists may also engage in quality assurance programs and clinical research.

Consultant pharmacists provide medication management review services. They work in collaboration with patients and their doctors to ensure the patient achieves the best outcomes from their drug therapy. Such pharmacists work in aged care facilities and/or patients’ homes.

Graduates may also develop a career in the pharmaceutical industry which employs pharmacists in a number of areas including research roles in the development of medicines, production of pharmaceuticals, quality assurance, regulatory services, marketing and drug information.
