The integrated scientific approach reflects the current state of knowledge regarding infectious microorganisms and their pathogenesis, immunology and the immune responses to infection, and the epidemiology and control of infectious diseases.
The principles and practices advocated for the effective prevention or minimisation of infectious diseases - in hospitals, laboratories, the general community and during outbreaks of disease - will be central issues in one of the major units of study. The course will also provide training in various laboratory techniques used in the disciplines of infectious diseases and immunology, including culture and identification of infectious organisms, antibiotic sensitivity testing, serology, immunohistochemistry, cellular immunology and molecular microbiology.
Target group: The course is designed for scientific and allied health professionals who wish to increase their knowledge and understanding of infectious diseases, infection control and the functioning of the immune system.
Applicants to the degree of Master of Science in Medicine must have either the degree of Bachelor of Science with first or second class honours, or the degree of Bachelor of Science from the University of Sydney, or equivalent, without first or second class honours and have completed equivalent work experience or passed a preliminary examination or examinations as prescribed by the Faculty.
