The programme consists of the following modules

Core:
Public Health
Epidemiology
Introduction to Clinical Statistics
Research Methods
Behavioural & Social Science
Applied Epidemiology
Statistics for Clinical Trials
Applied Statistics with Routine Health Datasets
Introduction to Systematic Reviews
Data Visualization
Spatial Epidemiology

Optional:
Students studying for a Master of Public Health then undertake research and write a dissertation.

How you will be assessed

The student's performance is monitored by continuous assessment throughout the programme. Written and oral examinations are held in December, March and May. Examinations are graded passes (A to D) or fail.

Students must obtain grade D or above in all written and oral examinations in order to be awarded the Diploma.

To be eligible to progress from the Diploma onto the Masters, students must pass the examination of each subject and achieve a minimum overall pass at B or above (60%).

Careers

The MPH prepares students for research and management careers in public health and also a variety of medical and health related disciplines.

Previous students graduating with the MPH from Dundee have taken up management positions in public health practice, nursing, professions allied to medicine, education, government, WHO and NGOs; and research positions within academic public health, general practice, acute medicine, nursing, professions allied to medicine, veterinary medicine, dentistry and environmental health.

The MPH also provides an ideal springboard for further postgraduate study at PhD and MD level.

"I had a wonderful time during my stay at Dundee. Scotland as a whole and Dundee in particular have very friendly and hospitable people. This course is a well-balanced general MPH course. It will provide the prospective students with a good foundation and skill set to advance their career in research, management or academics.

Programme Overview

Clinicians, scientists and students engaged in cancer research at Newcastle share a common purpose: to improve treatment outcomes for patients with cancer. Work covers a broad spectrum - understanding the biological and molecular differences between normal and malignant cells and using this knowledge to develop new anti-cancer drugs.

Research Supervision

Exploratory biology, target and biomarker discovery
Molecular genetic and mechanistic studies are used to identify critical molecular changes in cancer and their relevance to disease development and progression, and to validate these as biomarkers and targets for therapeutic intervention. A wide range of contemporary genomic, bioinformatic, molecular biology, biochemical and cell biology techniques are used.

Studies focus on haematological malignancies (leukaemia and lymphoma), paediatric solid tumours (neuroblastoma and medulloblastoma), and adult solid tumours (eg breast, ovarian, prostate, bladder and liver cancers).

Drug development
The exploitation of novel targets is achieved by the use of rational drug design, notably the use of structure-based design, in conjunction with medium-throughput screening. Target molecule synthesis and multiple parallel synthesis approaches are used for lead optimisation, and candidate drugs are evaluated in cell-free and whole cell target-based assays.

Biomarker development
We exploit critical molecular defects as biomarkers to enhance disease detection and diagnosis, prediction of disease course, sensitivity to specific drugs and therapeutic monitoring. We play leading roles in molecular diagnostics, biomarker assessment and therapeutic monitoring for national and international clinical trials.

Clinical trials
Clinical trials (Phase I/II/III) are undertaken in both adults and children. Trials have a strong hypothesis-testing translational research component and are performed under the auspices of national or international research networks (eg CR–UK, CCLG, EORTC), as well as directly in collaboration with the pharmaceutical industry.

Training and Skills

As a research student you will receive a tailored package of academic and support elements to ensure you maximise your research and future career. The academic information is in the programme profile and you will be supported by our Faculty of Medical Sciences Graduate School.
