Medicine

Graduate certificate

Perioperative medicine encompasses caring for patients from the time they contemplate surgery through the operative period to a full recovery.

The Graduate Certificate of Medicine provides you with the knowledge and skills to deliver perioperative care as part of a multidisciplinary team. Delivered with Alfred Health’s Department of Anaesthesiology and Perioperative Medicine, our course prepares you to apply perioperative medicine principles to patients with complex, chronic and acute medical conditions requiring surgical interventions. You’ll learn how to create and implement evidence-based perioperative management plans in your workplace, understand risk and optimise care for your patients during the perioperative period.

This course is delivered fully online, combining the recognition of a Monash qualification with the flexibility required by working clinicians. With Commonwealth Supported Places available for 2021, there’s never been a better time to study perioperative medicine.

Further study

A Graduate Certificate of Medicine could also lead you towards further study, with the opportunity to progress into the Master of Medicine.
