About the programme
This programme develops a critical understanding of the physiology and pharmacology of a wide range of body systems in health and disease This programme allows students to understand the causes and diagnosis of disease This programme highlights the importance of nutrition in health and disease Students on this programme will use and learn a wide range of techniques and instrumentation (from cellular to whole body) to investigate the body This programme emphasises the normal values of a wide range of tissue variables and how measurement of changes in these are useful in diagnosis This programme is unique in explaining how medical instruments work and are used to collect and analyse biological signals This programme enables students to learn the practical and theoretical skills of basic life support and obtain a first aid certificate The programme is supported by a newly equipped Physiology, Pharmacology, Sports and Bioscience laboratories. Specialist lecturers from hospitals and other universities are invited to give lectures to enhance the student experience Transferable and research skills and practical training are an integral part of the MSc and PGD programme. Much of the taught component is available on UELPlus allowing students to study at their own pace.
One year full time or two years part time for MSc and PG Diploma (PG Diploma only available as an intermediate award). One year part time for PG Certificate (only available as an intermediate award). Part-time MSc students study Research skills for Pharmacology & Physiology in semester A and Clinical Instrumentation & Diagnostic Physiology in semester B of the first year. These are followed by Advanced Cellular Pharmacology & Physiology in semester A of year 2 and Health and Disease of Physiological Systems in semester B. The project would be taken in the summer period. Taught modules are delivered in a semesterised system, with semesters running from September to January and February to June. The research projects will run through the summer period
