Clinical neurophysiology is a broad discipline, encompassing diagnostic services for patients presenting with neurological dysfunction, systemic diseases and critical illnesses, through to the provision of intraoperative monitoring of the nervous system during at-risk procedures.

This course is designed for anaesthetists, neurologists, neurophysiology scientists and technologists, and trainees in these areas.

The Master of Medicine and the Master of Science in Medicine have different admission requirements. Only medical graduates (ie those with a recognised medical degree) may be admitted to the Master of Medicine while non-medical graduates may be admitted to the Master of Science in Medicine.

Course outcomes

This coursework will provide graduates with a sound understanding of the theoretical principles and practical application of the commonly employed techniques in clinical neurophysiology. Graduates will develop the knowledge and skills to work in diagnostic and perioperative settings.

Course information

The courses aim to provide structured educational programs in neurophysiological monitoring to complement experiential learning in the workplace. This will be the only postgraduate coursework of its kind in Australia.

In 2016, the program will only be available for part-time study but will be available for full-time study in subsequent years. It will be delivered largely online with all clinical units of study (except Basic Sciences in Clinical Neurophysiology) incorporating short intensive face-to-face teaching in block mode in Sydney.
