Program Description

Reproductive medicine is an expanding field. It is at the forefront of emerging medico-scientific technology offering hope to many needy couples, and career opportunities to those with demonstrable skills and knowledge. Increasing numbers of medical practitioners are developing special interests in this area – particularly GPs, family planning practitioners and specialist gynaecologists working in menopause and infertility. In addition there are similar specialisations emerging in nursing and counselling, and amongst biological scientists. This program offers an entirely web-based alternative where practitioners are able to integrate their study program into their daily professional life without the costly disruption a face-to-face coursework entails.

Program Objectives and Graduate Attributes

The program will provide a more detailed knowledge of reproductive medicine and a qualification that will clearly demonstrate their expertise.

Program Structure

The MRMed is designed to be completed part-time over two (2) years. However, a significant degree of flexibility is allowed in completing the program to suit the student and his/her time commitments. Basic Reproductive Physiology must be completed before undertaking the clinical courses (SWCH9003/4/5). Students may then select any combination of electives to make a total of 48 UoC for the program. Students may undertake up to 12 UoC in courses from outside the School, with approval from the Program Coordinator. Assessment is all done on-line with electronically-marked MCQs, on-line discussion sessions and scheduled assignments. For each course students should allow 8-10 hours per week over the 12 week semester for reading, research, on-line chatroom, assessments and assignments.
