Do you work in a public health, clinical health, scientific, or food production environment and need to know about how to prevent and minimise the spread of infection?

Our graduate courses are not only for nurses and other clinical staff, but anyone whose field of work involves the potential for infection transmission, such as scientists, lab technicians or allied health workers.

In this one-year Graduate Diploma you develop your skills and knowledge in microbiology, epidemiology and epidemiological research, and learn best-practice strategies to prevent and minimise the spread of infectious organisms.

Leadership is a strong focus of this course and using evidence-based research, you explore leadership issues and how they relate to the implementation and coordination of infection risk management.

You also learn what’s involved in delivering effective monitoring and quality assurance programmes. If you have already completed the Graduate Certificate in this field of graduate study, you can apply to continue your study for another semester to gain your Graduate Diploma in Infection Risk Management.
