Master of Medicine (Radiology) comprises three years full-time supervised clinical training in a hospital-based Department of Radiology approved by The University of Melbourne.
Training includes two years lecture and tutorial program and a revision program at the commencement of the third year.
The full-time overseas program runs for a period of two years.
The Master of Medicine course runs parallel with training for the Fellowship of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologists (FRANZCR).
The FRANZCR Part I examination exempts trainees from Part I Master of Medicine. The Master of Medicine Examination is conducted in the 3 rd year of the program and provides invaluable preparation for the FRANZCR Part II examination.
Candidates are required to select one area of the discipline for study in greater depth. A minor thesis of up to 15,000 words is to be prepared on a research project based on the selected discipline.
|Objectives:||On completion of the course, students acquire a defined body of knowledge and procedural skills which will be used to perform diagnostic and therapeutic procedures and to make appropriate clinical decisions. The course endeavours to develop students' analytical and problem-solving skills necessary to function as effective diagnostic radiologists. Candidates are expected to adapt their cognitive and observation skills to enable accurate interpretation of the various medical imaging modalities employed in modern radiology. The course aims to ensure that the qualified radiologist will continue to keep up to date with new developments in imaging, and make learning, teaching and research a part of the professional career. Candidates will be able to collaborate effectively with other health professionals for the provision of optimal patient care, education and research. |
|Course Structure & Available Subjects:||Candidates participate in clinical training under designated supervisors for a period of two and a half years. Training is undertaken in a range of medical imaging employing: radiography, angiography, ultrasound, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and nuclear medicine techniques. In the third year, students are examined on their clinical training and submit for examination a minor research project in the third year. |
