About

The Medicine (Advanced) (Internal Medicine) program at the University of Sydney is the first of its kind in Australia. It is a collaboration between The University of Melbourne and The University of Sydney which provides a unique depth of teaching and clinical experience. 

Overview

The Medicine (Advanced) (Internal Medicine) program at the University of Sydney is focused on doctors undertaking training with the Royal Australasian College of Physicians, it offers a strong background in internal medicine to trainees and established clinicians in emergency medicine, intensive care medicine and general practice who want to develop their knowledge and skills in adult internal medicine.Flexible case-based learning will enable you to maximise the learning opportunities in your clinical exposure. You will advance your clinical knowledge and practice in areas of interest, as well as develop expertise in other areas important to career advancement. The basic stream specific units are aimed at the level of knowledge expected for the FRACP Basic Training examination, while the advanced units offer greater depth in these areas of study.  

There are a broad range of elective units which include clinical reasoning and communication, medical education, statistical analysis, grant writing, and other research skills. A great benefit of the program will be the opportunity to interact with other doctors who are at a similar stage in their career, share knowledge and skills in a supportive environment, and make key contacts with Australia's leading physicians. The largely online nature of the course means that you can continue your educational program during rotation to suburban, rural and regional hospitals. 

Career Pathways

The program has been designed to enable you to diagnose, investigate and manage the common and important adult diseases of the organ systems. The knowledge you gain will be directly applicable to patient care and readily integrated into your day-to-day work. 

The coursework will focus on clinical skills, rational use of investigative technology, appropriate therapeutic decision making, inclusive patient management, and assumes a working knowledge of the basic sciences. The program will emphasise evidence-based practice while providing guidance in areas where the evidence base is lacking or inconclusive.

On completion of the advanced project, students will be able to plan and execute a substantial research project and prepare a scholarly work which may be a paper for publication.
