Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry
Designed as both a thorough introduction and update in the fields of gastroenterology, hepatology and nutrition, this programme is aimed at clinicians wishing to gain strong knowledge of the sciences underpinning clinical diseases and their management. It offers a focus on the relevant basic sciences and research techniques.
You will be based at the Centre for Immunobiology which has two endoscopy training simulators, and training on these simulators is included if you are a full-time student. You will also have opportunities to observe clinical meetings, audits, clinics or endoscopy sessions, mainly in the latter half of the year.
This programme will:
- Cover the complete curriculum in gastroenterology, hepatology and nutrition if you are a new entrant into these fields, and act as an update and extension if you are already working in it.
- Give you hands on training in endoscopy techniques.
You can also choose to study this MSc via distance learning, either full-time or part-time.

Why study your MSc in Gastroenterology at Queen Mary?
Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry is comprised of two world renowned teaching hospitals, St Bartholomew’s and The Royal London, which have made, and continue to make, an outstanding contribution to modern medicine. We were one of the top five in the UK for medicine in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise.
The Centre for Immunobiology is one of the largest academic and clinical departments in this field in the UK and includes professors in GI genetics, paediatrics, surgery, neurogastroenterology, clinical gastroenterology, GI pharmacology and GI physiology, all of whom contribute to the postgraduate teaching. The vast majority of the teaching is provided by clinical academics who are both research and clinically active.
Students attending the MSc based in London have opportunities to observe clinical meetings, audits, clinics or endoscopy sessions in the large clinical department mainly in the latter half of the year. There are also two endoscopy training simulators and so training in endoscopy on these simulators is included for on-site students.
