The University of Melbourne

Drawing on the best expertise from the Melbourne Medical School, Melbourne Dental School, the Melbourne School of Health Sciences and the wider university, the Graduate Certificate in Clinical Teaching is a year of study that will provide students with the knowledge, skills and understanding they need to take their teaching to a higher level. It will also introduce students to an exciting group of clinical peers who share their passion for teaching.

Course Fee:

Australian: $11,900

Entry Requirements:

Entry-to-practice degree or equivalent in a health discipline; or bachelors degree or equivalent in another area and three years' clinical teaching experience; plus involved in the delivery of clinical teaching.


Participants may select either the standard mode of delivery where teaching for two subjects is spread across a semester or intensive delivery where teaching for two subjects is completed during one intensive week of delivery. Study load options: Full load option: Participants will attend four full-day seminars once per semester, completing two subjects per semester.
