18 Position of Colleges: ACEM ACEM: CEPI5100: Introduction to Clinical Epidemiology has been approved for the purpose of fulfilling the Trainee Research Requirement. CRIT5008: Evidence and Ethics in Practice is currently under consideration for approval for the purpose of fulfilling the Trainee Research Requirement. (PUBH5018 Introductory Biostatistics is approved by ACEM for the purpose of fulfilling the Trainee Research Requirement. This subject can be undertaken as a general elective for the completion of the Graduate Diploma or Master of Medicine (Critical Care). 18

19 Position of Colleges: ANZCA / CICM ANZCA: The Graduate Diploma in Medicine (Critical Care) and the Master of Medicine (Critical Care) satisfy the requirements for Scholar Role B provided that: › the core unit, CEPI5100 Introductory Clinical Epidemiology; and ›the capstone unit, code CRIT5008 Evidence and Ethics in Practice have been completed. Pre-approval must be sought but will be granted automatically for this course. Successful completion of the Advanced Master of Medicine (Critical Care) option also satisfies the requirements, provided that the work produced is accepted for publication. CICM: The Advanced option of the Master of Medicine (Critical Care) may be undertaken to fulfill the requirements of the Formal Project. 19

20 Why do these degrees? ›Stand out from your peers ›Help meet College training requirements ›Prepare for College examinations ›Gain insight from leaders in your chosen field ›Acquire knowledge and skills in clinical leadership and medical education ›Establish a network of contacts with senior clinicians and your peers 20

21 Who will study this degree and why? ›If you are preparing for your primary examination for ACEM, ANZCA, CICM – complete basic sciences, then sit Primary, then complete Master degree ›If you have passed your Primary and want to develop your knowledge in specific areas – research, retrieval medicine, pain medicine ›If you want to improve your skills as a clinician and broaden your skill base – Communication, consent, ethics; Leadership; Medical Education; Diabetes; Paediatrics ›If you have an interest in pursuing research – learn methodology; opportunity with Advanced component to undertake research project. ›Unsure of what specialty you want to pursue but want to start studying – complete core unit and general electives and give yourself time to think before committing to stream. 21

23 FAQs ›Q: How many hours per week will I need for each unit of study? Up to 10 hours. Basic sciences in particular are content rich. A 6 credit point unit equates to about 130 hours per semester. This includes face to face, online, assessment and study time. Most working students will undertake 1-2 units per semester. ›Q. Is there any fee assistance? You can pay your fees up front for the units you study, or defer payments through the federal government’s FEE-HELP loan scheme so that you pay later through the taxation system. More information is available on the Future Student website at ›Q. What is the cost for domestic students? Each 6 credit point unit costs $3350 Master degree costs $26,800 (48 credit points) 23

24 ›What is the difference between a Master of Science in Medicine and a Master of Medicine? ›Which degree you enrol in (and are later awarded), depends on your prior qualifications; some units of study are designed for medical doctors, other units are designed for doctors and other health professionals ›Master of Medicine – admission normally requires a Doctor of Medicine or Bachelor of Medicine/Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS). ›Master of Science in Medicine – admission normally requires a bachelor’s degree in a health discipline with first- or second-class honours. Applicants who do not meet this requirement may be admitted on the basis of having completed equivalent work experience. ›We are hoping to offer specific units to non-medical graduates in the future. 24
