You will advance your clinical knowledge and practice in areas of interest, as well as develop expertise in other areas important to career advancement.

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.
