Why study this course? 

While the program is focused on doctors undertaking training with the Royal Australasian College of Physicians, it offers a strong background in internal medicine to trainees and established clinicians in emergency medicine, intensive care medicine and general practice who want to develop their knowledge and skills in adult internal medicine.

Flexible case-based learning will enable you to maximise the learning opportunities in your clinical exposure.

The largely online nature of the course means that you can continue your educational program during rotation to suburban, rural and regional hospitals.
