Perioperative Medicine has been defined as the care of patients from the time they contemplate surgery through the operative period to full recovery at home.
The course is aimed at medical practitioners working in this emerging field. It has been designed to facilitate the delivery of collaborative and optimal perioperative care to patients presenting with complex, chronic and acute medical conditions requiring surgical intervention.
Note: It is not the purpose of this course to act as a pathway into specialty training in Australia. Completion of this course leads to a Masters qualification but not to specialist recognition. Such recognition is only granted by the relevant Australian and New Zealand specialty Colleges as per their individual requirements.
Note: The Master of Medicine name title has been amended to Master of Perioperative Medicine from 2022 onwards. The course code remains the same. The new title is only applicable to students commencing study in 2022 and onwards.

Students in the final semester of their course can apply to graduate. Our student cohort is eligible to graduate in the March/April and September/October rounds (our students are ineligible to graduate in the December round). Applications open around 3 months prior to the graduation ceremony.
Students apply to graduate via the Web Enrolment System. Graduation is not automatic and all students must apply to graduate in order to receive their testamur. Students who do not wish to attend a ceremony can graduate in absentia. This option can be selected when completing your graduation application.
Each semester (once results are released) the Department of Anaesthesiology and Preventive Medicine processes course completions. We then email eligible students advising that they have been course completed and that they can apply to graduate. However, you can apply prior if applications are open. If you require a Letter of Qualification prior to graduation (once results are released in the final semester of the course) please log a request with Monash Connect
