Masters degrees in Cellular Pathology equip postgraduates with the skills to detect, study and treat the effects and nature of diseases within cellular structures of the human body.
Related postgraduate specialisms include Biomedical Science and Clinical Oncology. Entry requirements usually include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject, such as Medicine or Biology.
Cytopathology covers a whole realm of diseases within many parts of the human body. As such, the training you’ll receive on these courses provides you with a wealth of career opportunities.
For example, you may want to specialise in the treatment of cancer cells within the body, ultimately practising within specialised treatment units to detect and treat cancer. This could include undertaking research in a research institute, or practising clinical medicine.
Alternatively, you might focus your studies on the treatment of certain infectious diseases such as STIs (particularly HIV). Knowledge developed within this area of the field may open opportunities within medicine, community care and charity work.
You may also wish to specialise in certain kinds of cell collection for sampling, research and diagnosis purposes. These include exfoliative cytology, intervention cytology and sediment cytology.
