Women's Health Medicine is an expanding and diverse field of practice. It encompasses the timely provision of sexual and reproductive care, pre-pregnancy and pregnancy care as well as the management of female-specific conditions. Increasing numbers of medical practitioners are developing special interests in this area – particularly GPs, family planning practitioners and generalist gynaecologists. Specialisations are also emerging in this field among nursing and allied health professionals and biological scientists. The Master of Women's Health Medicine will provide you with the advanced knowledge and understanding of the ethical, social and professional aspects required to deliver a high standard of clinical care. Courses within this degree have been developed to provide an evidence-based and practice-centred approach to this field of study.
