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.
Admission to the program normally requires a bachelor's degree in a health discipline with first or second class honours from the University of Sydney or another approved institution. If candidates do not have an honours degree, they may be admitted on the basis of having completed equivalent work or passing a preliminary examination as prescribed by the Faculty of Medicine.
