This program extends the students' undergraduate learning in the biomedical sciences with a focus on the knowledge and technical skill set required for research or employment in the diagnostic and research environments of clinical pathology. The first half of the course focuses on the six major disciplines of clinical pathology (biochemistry, haematology and transfusion science, immunology, anatomical pathology, genetics and microbiology) as well as key elements of professional practice (e.g. communication skills, occupational health and safety, quality control, ethics, regulatory/legislative frameworks). The program structure allows students to exit after the first year with a Graduate Diploma in Clinical Pathology. The second year of the master's degree provides students with advanced training in two or three of the aforementioned disciplines including relevant laboratory experience.
