Recognition of Prior Learning


Monash University recognises prior short courses or equivalent subjects. These may count towards the Diploma or Master of Medicine - perioperative medicine stream.

Short Course Participants

Participants who have previously completed the Perioperative Medicine Short Course during 2009 to 2013 will automatically obtain credit for POM5001.

Those participants will only need to complete the remaining three units to obtain the Graduate Diploma in Perioperative Medicine.

Short course participants from 2014 onwards will no longer receive credit for POM5001.
