PhD (Paramedicine)


The Department of Paramedicine at Monash University, offers the Doctor of  Philosophy (PhD) research degree. This degree combines coursework (up to 30%)  with research (thesis or publications 70 - 100%) and is ideal for paramedics  and emergency care clinicians seeking advanced research skills and who wish to  make a substantial impact to their discipline. The Australian Government's  Research Training Scheme (RTS) covers course fees for research candidates who  are Australian or New Zealand citizens or Australian permanent residents for  the specified duration of their course.

The PhD degree can be completed full or part  time, and tailored to suit your employment obligations. Students work with  their choice of academic supervisor. Work included in thesis and coursework  components must be completed during the period of enrolment in the degree. Most  students would complete the PhD over 3 years full time or 6 years part time,  although shorter time periods are not uncommon.


Enrolment in the PhD research degree can occur  at any time during the year.
