The three 12 credit point units (POM5101, POM5102, POM5103) are quite intensive and we suggest 20 to 24 hours per week of study commitment for each unit to view the lectures, complete the reading packages and dedication to research in answering the course work (essays, group discussions and short answer questions). The two 6 credit point capstone project units (POM5105 and POM5106) are less intensive but still require a suggested minimum of 10 to 15 hours of study dedication for each unit. These 2 units can be studied concurrently (or separately) with POM5106 the last enrolled unit/s of the course.
Intermission (study leave) can be granted for up to 12 months (i.e. two semesters either taken together or separately) during the duration of the course. To apply, please complete an Intermission application form and email the form to the Department of Anaesthesiology Course Administrator at email@example.com
Intermission applications can be submitted at any time, keeping in mind the census date for applicable semester/s.
The census date is:
You have until 11.59pm on the census date to make changes to your units without financial or academic penalty.
Enrolled students receive a Welcome Package to their Monash student email account one week prior to the official semester start date for each enrolled unit.
Unit content is released on a weekly basis (as appropriate) and assessment tasks have a set release date and due date.
Content is unable to be released outside of this period. If you have planned leave during the semester you will need to manage your study commitments as required.
For all units, access to the unit material/web closes immediately after the end of the semester.
Please refer to the Monash official semester start and finish dates at Semester Dates
Course material is only available for the duration of the applicable semester study period.
Yes, you do! The two units studied are eligible for credit towards your Masters’ degree. You will then need to complete 3 more units. These are either POM5101, POM5102, or POM5103 (depending on which unit you did not complete as part of the Graduate Certificate of Perioperative Medicine) in addition to both POM5105 and POM5106 capstone project units.
Once you have completed the Graduate Certificate, you are eligible to apply for the Master of Perioperative Medicine during the next open admission period. Your units studied in the Graduate Certificate will be credited towards the Master of Perioperative Medicine (subject to meeting the 7-year credit recency policy and unit content not changing significantly over this period).
You have 7 years from completing the Graduate Certificate to enrolling into the Master of Perioperative Medicine for successfully completed units to be credited to the Masters.
