I am a fertility specialist and undertook the Master's during my subspecialty training. The Master's addressed some areas which were complementary to my subspecialty training and of particular value were the modules on the Laboratory and the Ethics of Assisted Reproduction. I found these to be stimulating and enjoyable to study and in addition the online learning made it possible to schedule my study around full-time work.

I thoroughly enjoyed studying the Master of Reproductive Medicine on-line at UNSW over the past few years. I work as a GP in Paddington and have always had a keen interest in fertility and woman's health. I am also involved with the Antenatal Shared Care program with the Royal Hospital for Women in Sydney. A wide variety of subjects are offered and I found the subjects relevant to my work as a GP. I have particularly enjoyed the subjects which I had not yet covered in medical training, such as the ethics of reproductive technologies and psychosocial aspects of fertility. The course was easy to navigate on-line and I found IT support were able to resolve issues quickly.

Tutors were available when I required and their feedback was useful and appropriate. I am currently completing my last subject of the Master's and am happy to say that I have been impressed by this course and UNSW.

Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture - Integrated Reproductive Medicine


I researched furthering my education in the area of Reproductive Medicine from the perspective of being a CAM (Complimentary & Alternative) medical practitioner in the area of Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture / Reproductive health.

It is clear for practitioners of all modalities of medical practice that we are entering a new era of a more integrated medicine and that the growing evidence base for complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) and its widespread community use compels doctors to understand complementary therapies and to refer patients to CAM practitioners where appropriate. Also it is clear that CAM practitioners such as myself need to up skill our understanding of WM  (Western Medicine) protocols in order to best support our patients and understand what further investigations / treatment strategies should or could be incorporated.  I have found this course to be of great benefit to my practice. It has bridged many gaps and enabled me to be more confidently conversant with the WM establishment re shared patients. I found the course well paced & challenging without me having to sacrifice daily practice.

I am currently a Senior Resident in O&G and completed the Master of Reproductive Medicine during my Internship. As a junior doctor with an interest in O&G, particularly the field of Reproductive Medicine, I found the Master's course exceptionally relevant and helpful. Its superbly organized online learning structure made it possible for me to undertake it whilst fulfilling the commitments of a full-time clinical job. The core subject of Basic Reproductive Physiology was especially helpful in providing relevant background knowledge, followed by gradual progression into more specialized elective subjects. On the completion of the Master's, you would expect a clearer understanding of the science, ethics and clinical application surrounding Reproductive Medicine. Personally I found this course to be a pertinent platform in my career thus far. I would highly recommend this course to my newly graduate medical colleagues and other junior (and not-so-junior) doctors. image - Student Testimonies

Key Account Manager – Pharmaceuticals industry

The Master of Reproductive Medicine has been a most rewarding and enjoyable study experience as it has enabled me to gain a much more in depth understanding of reproductive medicine far beyond the scope of purely the drugs that enable couples to fulfil their dreams.  

Primarily from a scientific background (histopathology and microbiology) I had been patiently waiting for an opportunity to work in the field of ART and was fortunate enough to secure a role with my current employer. Having a very basic understanding of fertility treatment coupled with the desire and enthusiasm to further extend my knowledge led to the discovery of the Master of Reproductive Medicine course offered by the University of New South Wales.

The attraction of this particular course is that being online it provides the flexibility to learn around the demands being a mother to three young children and full-time work commitments.  Initially I did have concerns as to how I would encompass study into my already busy life however the structure of the course has enabled me to integrate learning around times that suit me.

While challenging at times, the knowledge I am acquiring has enabled me to indulge in comprehensive discussions with customers while learning from their own experiences and expertise in dealing with fertility patients.  

I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to further their knowledge in reproductive medicine as the course offers choices of modules specific to your individual learning goals and aspirations.
