The University of Melbourne is the only institution in Australia to offer programs in all three essential skills in healthcare; clinical education, clinical research and clinical leadership.
Our high-quality, research-informed postgraduate and professional development programs are designed for clinicians from any discipline embedded within the clinical context. Join a network of passionate clinicians and develop career-building skills in clinical education, research or leadership.
Learning is predominantly undertaken face to face, giving you access to a rich education environment, led by industry experts from key institutions. In this practical and collaborative setting, you will learn alongside an engaged peer group and gain skills that you can immediately apply to your current practice.
No matter where you are in your career, we have a course that allows you to grow. Our range of study options includes convenient short courses and workshops through to flexible award courses, allowing you to fit study around your busy clinical schedule. Many of our courses also allow you to gain continuing professional development (CPD) points as you build towards your higher qualification.
The Excellence in Clinical Teaching (EXCITE) program provides a pathway of study from the Graduate Certificate, for those looking to develop practical teaching skills, through to the Master of Clinical Education, for those who seek to be leaders in the field.
Be at the forefront of medical innovation by developing the skills to conduct research in the clinical setting. This suite of courses will extend your skills in research design and analysis and provide you with the training to plan and implement research in the clinical setting.
Whether you are currently in a leadership role or may be in the future, our Clinical Leadership courses will help you gain the skills needed to improve your organisation, develop change initiatives, and promote treatment quality and safety excellence within healthcare settings.
