    Programme

    In the first year of the course the student can expect to study modules such as:

    -Research Designs in Health
    -Innovation, Leadership and Advancing Quality in Clinical Practice
    -Evidence-Based Practice.

    These modules examine the underpinnings of a modern research-based health service and provide the foundation for the dissertation. Several other cohorts of students also take these modules from a health service background, and inter-professional discussion will be encouraged, so as to ensure that topics are examined from a range of perspectives.

    The second year has the following core modules:

    -Advanced cancer biology
    -Advanced molecular genetics & genomics
    -Advanced topics in biomedical science.

    Additionally, students will study their chosen specialism at an advanced level, e.g. advanced clinical biochemistry, advanced histopathology & cytopathology, advanced immunology, advanced haematology, advanced medical microbiology.

    In the final year students carry out a research project (dissertation). This will enable them to choose and research a particular topic in their particular specialism in depth. Following the submission of the dissertation there will be an oral presentation and questions.

    Assessment will be via a number of different methods including essays, presentations, seen examinations, poster presentations, as well as a final dissertation.
