Master of Medicine (MMed) is a postgraduate academic degree awarded by medical schools to physicians following a period of instruction and examination. The degree is awarded by both surgical and medical subspecialties and usually includes a dissertation component involving original research. The degree may complement an existing fellowship in the chosen specialty or be the sole qualification necessary for registration as a specialist.

The following universities in the following countries are known to award MMed degrees, in the following subjects, as of May 2009:

Australia[edit]

University of Queensland[edit]

University of Sydney[edit]

Monash University[edit]

P.R. China[edit]

Chinese Universities in collaboration with their affiliated hospitals award either Specialty MMed or Academic MMed degrees. Specialty MMed degrees are awarded after a supervised rotational training in the university's Affiliated Teaching hospitals and lead to registration as specialist. Academic MMed degrees on the other hand  are Research and Basic Sciences related. Both qualifications are acceptable prerequisites for PhD enrolment. The entry requirements of both Specialty and Academic MMed programs are MBBS or related undergraduate medical qualifications .

Graduates of Specialty MMed qualifications can either choose to practise as specialist physicians and surgeons in their respective specialties or undergo subspecialty PhD/Fellowship training leading to a more specialised practice as consultants.
