St George’s, University of London
This course follows a curriculum designed by Health Education England and is suitable for healthcare professionals and other students with an interest in genomic medicine. As the programme is jointly taught by St George’s and King’s, students will benefit from the breadth of expertise provided by both institutions.
You will learn how recent technological advances have transformed how genomic data is generated, analysed and presented, and its relevance to a range of clinical scenarios, as well as how to handle such big data.
Development of knowledge and skills in these areas will enable healthcare professionals to deliver services aligned with the values of the NHS constitution. Life science graduates may use this as a stepping stone to a range of careers including in the NHS, the pharmaceutical industry, and bioinformatics, or as preparation for a PhD. This is a flexible programme is structured to provide options for PgCert and PgDip awards as well as the MSc or, if you prefer, modular study towards your Continuous Personal and Professional Development (CPPD).
Students need to have completed at least the first three years of their MBBS programme before they enrol onto our iMSc courses, and they need to have passed each of these three years at first attempt.
