f exible format course
is designed for working
doctors interested in
emergency medicine,
intensive care or
anaesthetics.
SYDNEY MEDICAL
SCHOOL
NEW IN 2015
CRITICAL CARE
MASTER OF MEDICINE
The Master of Medicine (Critical Care)
is unique in Australasia. It has been
developed in response to requests from
critical care specialists and trainees to
increase educat ional opport unities in
the specialties of emergency medicine,
intensive care and anaesthetics.
This degree is designed and will be
delivered by leading clinicians and
academics from our teaching hospit als
and the Universit y. The f exible format
combines intensive face-to-face with
interactive online delivery, and is
perfect for clinicians whose continuing
education is limited by time and
distance.
The degree is tailored to produce
well-rounded and analytical clinicians.
The basic science curriculum of the
Colleges will be addressed, as well as
a range of targeted stream-specif c
electives (eg Retrieval Medicine, Pain
Management, Communication, Consent
and Ethics) and general elective
subjects such as medical education,
leadership and grant writing.
This course provides the opportunit y to
advance clinical knowledge and practice
in areas of interest, as well as develop
expertise in other areas important to
career advancement.
A great benef t of the course will be
interacting with similar people at a
similar stage in their career, sharing
knowledge and skills in a supportive
environment, as well as making key
contacts with leading experts in critical
care.

22
FAQs
› Q: How many hours per week will I need for each unit of study?
Up to 10 hours. Basic sciences in particular are content rich. A 6 credit point unit
equates to about 130 hours per semester. This includes face to face, online,
assessment and study time. Most working students will undertake 1-2 units per
semester.
› Q. Is there any fee assistance?
You can pay your fees up front for the units you study, or defer payments through
the federal government’s FEE-HELP loan scheme so that you pay later through
the taxation system. More information is available on the Future Student website at
http://sydney.edu.au/future-students/
› Q. What is the cost for domestic students?
Each 6 credit point unit costs $3350
Master degree costs $26,800 (48 credit points)
23
› What is the difference between a Master of Science in Medicine and a
Master of Medicine?
› Which degree you enrol in (and are later awarded), depends on your prior
qualifications; some units of study are designed for medical doctors, other
units are designed for doctors and other health professionals
› Master of Medicine – admission normally requires a Doctor of Medicine or
Bachelor of Medicine/Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS).
› Master of Science in Medicine – admission normally requires a bachelor’s
degree in a health discipline with first- or second-class honours. Applicants
who do not meet this requirement may be admitted on the basis of having
completed equivalent work experience.
› We are hoping to offer specific units to non-medical graduates in the
future.
