The Master of Clinical Education is a 54-unit program offered by the Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences.
This articulated, multi-disciplinary program is designed to provide health professionals with advanced knowledge and skills to deliver clinical education in health service settings. This is an emergent specialty field of education characterised by a symbiotic relationship between the learner, an experienced clinical educator and the health service. This course is suitable for educators in both clinical and academic settings.
The course articulates with the Graduate Certificate in Clinical Education and the Graduate Diploma in Clinical Education with the sequentially developed topics allowing progression through the three awards. Students who have completed the graduate diploma normally are awarded credit for 36 units of topics towards the Masters. Students who have completed the graduate certificate normally are awarded credit for 18 units of topics towards the Masters.
Applicants who do not hold the Graduate Certificate in Clinical Education or the Graduate Diploma in Clinical Education must normally hold an approved degree or equivalent qualification from an approved tertiary institution and have not less than two years' work experience in a relevant clinical area. However, the Faculty Board may, under certain circumstances and subject to specific conditions, admit others who can show evidence of fitness for candidature.
