Master Molecular Medicine - Máster en Medicina Molecular
Master of Medicine (Radiology) comprises three years full-time supervised clinical training in a hospital-based Department of Radiology approved by The University of Melbourne.
Training includes two years lecture and tutorial program and a revision program at the commencement of the third year.
The Master of Medicine course runs parallel with training for the Fellowship of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologists (FRANZCR).
