The metabolic health programs have been developed to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of the aetiology, diagnosis and multidisciplinary treatment of metabolic diseases. Students will gain essential applied knowledge to manage diabetes, obesity and associated cardiovascular complications in the general population as well as in special groups, such as pregnant women.

The programs are suitable for medical practitioners working in primary care, emergency medicine, paediatrics and those planning to train in endocrinology and general medicine. They are also suited to pharmacists, nurses and other allied health professionals with an interest in the field.

The Master of Medicine and the Master of Science in Medicine have different admission requirements. Graduates with a recognised medical degree may be admitted to the Master of Medicine, and graduates with a health or science-related degree may be admitted to the Master of Science in Medicine.

Course outcomes

The program has been designed to ensure that the theory learned by participants can be applied to patient care and readily integrated into their day-to-day work.

Course information

The program is designed and delivered by international leaders in the field of diabetes, endocrinology, cardiovascular and metabolic health.

Unit of study learning materials are delivered online, incorporating case-based interactive learning with online tutorials to facilitate discussion and analysis. The face-to-face workshops will be highly practical.

The wide-ranging experience and knowledge of teaching staff ensures an up-to-date coverage of topics and issues related to clinical practice and evidence-based medicine.
