Programme Name Postgraduate Diploma in Internal Medicine (Quota Based)
Programme Description
The Diploma of Internal Medicine, is the first year of a full four year MMed programme, and is largely intended to provide a base of knowledge and experience which will enable the candidate to progress to the further three years of the MMed. However, it is also considered to be a qualification which, even if not followed by the full MMed programme, will enable graduates to practice Internal Medicine at a higher level of proficiency than would otherwise be the case.
