  • 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.
