However, some units of study and courses require students to study in-person at the relevant University of Sydney campus/es and host locations for placements and will not be available remotely. 

About this course

The Master of Medicine (Clinical Neurophysiology) is the only postgraduate course of its kind in Australia and offers students a sound understanding of the theoretical principles and practical application of all the commonly employed techniques in clinical neurophysiology.

Why study this course?

Clinical neurophysiology is a broad discipline, encompassing diagnostic services for patients presenting with neurological dysfunction, systemic diseases, and critical illnesses, through to the provision of intraoperative monitoring of the nervous system during at-risk procedures.

This course provides a structured curriculum in neurophysiological monitoring, aiming to enhance learning opportunities and skills taught in the workplace. 

Primarily taught online, your studies will be supplemented by intensive face-to-face teaching sessions which include practical experience in simulated diagnostic and perioperative settings. 

Who should study this course?

Designed for practising and trainee anaesthetists and neurologists, this course will provide you with a structured educational program to complement your workplace experience.

Individual units of study in this course may also be of interest to students enrolled in critical care coursework, or practitioners who do not wish to enrol in a degree but would like to complete a unit for continuing professional development.

Commonwealth Supported Places (CSP) are available for this course for eligible domestic students. This means that your course fees are subsidised by the Australian Government and you pay a student contribution amount (SCA). CSP places are limited in number and are allocated based on academic merit.
