About

The Medicine (Advanced) (Sexual and Reproductive Health) program at the University of Sydney provides a diverse and inter-professional curriculum suitable for Australian and international students interested in the range of disciplines related to HIV, sexually transmitted infections (STIs), sexual and reproductive health. 

Overview

The Medicine (Advanced) (Sexual and Reproductive Health) program at the University of Sydney states that globally, the challenges of sexual and reproductive health including HIV/STIs, infertility, and unintended pregnancy continue to be a significant public health issue. Challenges to sexual function and wellbeing also impacts on the health of individuals. Comprehensive prevention and treatment of SRH issues requires a thorough understanding of the psychosocial contexts in which they occur as well as the biological and diagnostic aspects of sexual and reproductive health and wellbeing.

The postgraduate program in sexual and reproductive health enables students to address these challenges through a range of units, with an option to choose one of four distinct pathways: 

  • HIV and STIs
  • Psychosexual therapy
  • Reproductive health and fertility
  • Public health

Compulsory and stream specific units of study provide students with foundational competence in these areas, while a wide range of electives creates the opportunity for students to further explore areas of interest. The interprofessional and multidisciplinary structure encourages students to develop effective collaborative approaches to employment in a variety of healthcare settings.

The program is designed to provide the maximum professional relevance, flexibility and choice. All units of study engage the current evidence base and encourage critical engagement with the evidence. To facilitate the best educational and professional outcomes from their studies, each student is advised to discuss their unit of study choices with a pathway coordinator before the commencement of each semester. The program also provides opportunities for students to transition to higher degree research candidature.
