Clinical Research - M6028
Expert master degree
Our course enables you to specialise in clinical research or translational medicine. The clinical research specialisation will allow you to develop a detailed understanding of biostatistics, epidemiology, data management, clinical trials, clinical measurement, ethical practice, systematic reviews and meta-analysis, and critical appraisal of the scientific literature for application in research and clinical practice.
To ensure depth of understanding, as well as providing a valuable opportunity to innovate within their particular fields, you have the option to develop your own research protocol and undertake a clinical epidemiological project.
The translational medicine specialisation will provide you with understanding of biostatistics, epidemiology, clinical trials and ethics. It will provide you with the opportunity to develop competency across a range of translational medicine fields including blood diseases, metabolic disorders, neuroscience and bioinformatics.
The course structure and flexibility assists you to extend, integrate and apply your core knowledge and skills with depth across the broad domain of clinical practice and research, something that students want in a highly competitive industry and employers have identified as important.
Taught by some of Australia’s leading clinical academics, the curriculum is designed for students seeking to balance the demands of a busy workflow with the need to engage in further professional development. Structured around a mixture of online educational delivery and face-to-face block days, the course provides a level of detailed engagement that is also flexible. Block days are delivered at The Alfred Hospital, a major teaching hospital in inner-city Melbourne.
You can undertake this course full-time or part-time. Assessment is based on written assignments, examinations, class participation, web-based tasks and the optional supervised research project.
