In 2019, the Master of International Public Health will be renamed the Master of Global Health, the only degree of its kind in Australia. The new, premium program will increase in duration from 12 to 18 months (from 48 credit points to 72 credit points), providing students with the time to specialise in their chosen field, and the opportunity to undertake a diverse range of international and professional placements.
The Master of Medicine (Child and Adolescent Health), formerly Paediatric Medicine, provides students with the core knowledge and clinical decision making skills required for day-to-day paediatric practice. Child and adolescent health covers a broad range of case-based practical and relevant subjects, allowing clinicians to increase their understanding of how to provide the best healthcare for children. Child and adolescent health students learn from Sydney Medical School's highly regarded clinical, education and research staff in the Discipline of Child and Adolescent Health, based at the Children's Hospital at Westmead. This program reflects their clinical and academic expertise in a wide range of areas, including allergy, immunisation, infectious diseases and child obesity.
