Assessment

Online Diploma in Endocrinology

The course puts assessment at the heart of learning by using clinical scenarios to facilitate problem-solving, critical analysis and evidence-based care. The scenarios act as both the focus for learning and assessment thus embedding assessment within the learning process.

Each of the 6 modules has the same assessment format. Due to the online nature of the course, students are expected to login and participate in the course regularly throughout the module (ideally on a daily basis).

Students are split into groups of 10-15 students and are assigned a dedicated expert tutor who:

Facilitates clinical case discussions with the group.
Monitors, assesses and marks each student throughout the module.
Students use the skills gained during the lectures to engage with the different activities (see below).
Clinical case scenarios with case based discussion - 40%
Individual learning portfolio - 10%
Group/individual activity - 20%
Case based examination - 30%

Teaching Methods

Each module has the same format. Using an online platform and one tutor per 10-15 students, the self-directed distance learning is guided by tutor stimulated discussion based on clinically rich case scenarios. Group projects are undertaken alongside independent projects. Reflective practice is recorded in a reflective portfolio to help students consider how the learning can be translated into everyday work and practice.

Teaching starts with 1 day of introductory lectures. Students may attend these lectures in the UK (Glyntaff campus, University of South Wales) or South Africa (CDE Johannesburg).

The lecture series are delivered by the faculty and tutors, they are a pre-course organiser, giving students the tools required to undertake the online course such as:

Scientific writing.
Levels of evidence.
Harvard referencing.
Reflective writing.
The lectures series give an opportunity to meet face to face with tutors/other students prior to the online course.

Students are not required to attend the lectures however do benefit as they get a "jump start" to the course. Students who are not able to attend, should request a skype/telephone call to orientate them onto the course and are advised to review the lecture slides.

•Development of the Male and Female Reproductive Systems
•Endocrinology - Activation of the Gonads and Regulation of Gametogenesis
•Fertilisation and Early Embryo Development
•Experimental Approaches to Improved Understanding of Reproduction and Development
•Pregnancy
•Development and Stem Cell Biology

During this taught component, you will receive practical training in, for example:

•Microscopy (dissection, confocal, and fluorescence)
•QPCR
•Western Blotting

You will be assessed throughout the course component, with the PG Certificate concluding with the final examination in March. At this point, MSc students will enter their research project.

It allows clinicians to explore biomedical research before deciding whether to embark on a research-based career. It draws on the wealth of cutting-edge research conducted within UCL Institute of Child Health and Great Ormond Street Hospital. The programme is designed to allow students to explore other areas of biomedicine they may not have previously considered.

Why study this degree at UCL?

The Institute of Child Health (ICH), together with its clinical partner Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH), is the largest centre in Europe devoted to clinical and basic research postgraduate education in children's health. Our research and educational portfolio cover a broad range of paediatric issues, from molecular genetics to ovulation health sciences, and encourages interdisciplinary work and the development of new areas of investigation.

MRes Biomedicine students have the opportunity to draw on the extensive expertise and knowledge of both ICH and GOSH and benefit from excellent state-of-the-art facilities in both laboratory and non-laboratory subjects.

There is also the option to apply for a combined MRes + PhD four year programme.This option may be of interest for those who are able to obtain 4 years of funding and wish to go on to study for an MPhil/PhD at ICH/GOSH directly after completing the MRes degree.
