Award Courses

Health care systems are increasingly complex with unprecedented advances in technology and in the nature of health care delivery to increasingly informed patients. Health professions education has the challenge of preparing our future health care professionals to practice and continually develop as proficient practitioners and educators of future health care professionals. To this end, we in the Monash Institute for Health and Clinical Education have developed a range of relevant and innovative programs designed to develop and sustain your skills as educators of current and future health care professionals. Our courses are designed for anyone working in the health professions as practitioners and/or educators. Through inter-professional faculty and scholars, our courses explore current trends in health professions education globally. We teach a range of directly applicable skills and techniques to enhance your educational practices. Our goal is to provide the theoretical foundations and practical skills required for contemporary best practice as educators in the health professions, across undergraduate and specialty training.

We have developed a highly innovative approach to certification in continuing education, where half of our award degrees are completed via approved short courses and half via award units. The goal is to enable busy health professionals to undertake short courses that are relevant to their practice and accredit these to one of our two Graduate Certificate Degrees.

M4009 Graduate Certificate of Health Professions Education

“As a health professional with competing demands on your limited time, we understand the need to tailor continuing professional development to your specific professional needs. To this end we have created an innovative process for completion of award degrees tailored specifically to health professionals.”

M4008 Graduate Certificate of Clinical Simulation

"It's clear that simulation will always have an important role in health professions education and practice. This course will help participants to make informed decisions about how to use simulation optimally. We'll balance exploring theory and evidence with the practicalities of using simulation. I'm really excited to be working with my colleagues and participants in this course."
