Course content

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.

This programme, based in the Centre for Immunobiology, 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.
  • Offer you the flexibility of distance learning.
  • Offer opportunities to stay in the Centre as clinical research fellow, if your aim is further study.

You can also choose to study this MSc full-time for one year at our London campus.
