The Department of General Practice offers this program to general practitioners who wish to expand their knowledge and skills in areas relevant to general practice. It also provides them with research and teaching skills to prepare them for potential academic general practice careers.
On completion of this course, graduates should be able to: carry out independent and collaborative research in general practice at a level expected of a Monash Graduate; supervise research projects of a nature comparable to those required of Masters graduates; participate in curriculum development, teaching, assessment and evaluation of education programs at various levels, including undergraduate, vocational training and continuing medical education of established general practitioners; and demonstrate organisational skills required of academic general practitioners with respect to teaching and research.
Candidates are required to undertake coursework and research. The coursework includes elective units and/or a mix of modules plus a compulsory core unit and minor thesis.
* This unit is not compulsory but is highly recommended.
Assessment will be by coursework participation, formal assignments, projects and minor thesis and some weekend workshops.
