Bioinformatics provides an important bridge between cutting-edge science and the delivery of genomic medicine in clinical practice.

Demand for genetic testing and, therefore, clinical bioinformatics is increasing globally all the time, but there is a severe shortage of bioinformaticians able to analyse clinical genomic data. This Postgraduate Certificate will enable you to gain the necessary skills to fill this gap and enhance your career opportunities.

Course overview

Our fully-online PGCert is a practical, clinically-focused course aimed at providing the necessary skills to produce high quality bioinformatic workflows to analyse and interpret clinical genomic data.

Studying units such as next generation sequencing and an introduction to programming, you’ll extend your knowledge of critical methods of genomic analysis.

You will learn how to:

  • understand the theory and practice of clinical bioinformatics;
  • develop a critical understanding of how data is generated by clinical genomic laboratories;
  • use this information and how it can be logically and systematically employed to deliver effective clinical management of genetic conditions;
  • contribute to innovation, change and service developments in clinical science at both the laboratory and institutional levels.

Who is this course for?

This course is suitable for a range of healthcare professionals including bioscientists, clinicians, computer scientists, informaticians, clinical scientists. This course is designed to develop your knowledge in this new field and enhance your career.

Where will it take me?

Successful graduates of this course will gain the skills and knowledge to pursue and develop a career or hone a specialism in clinical bioinformatics.

You’ll make a real difference in understanding disease processes and improving healthcare. This course provides a starting point for a career in this rapidly expanding area of healthcare.

Career opportunities

Many of our students studying related programmes have continued to pursue careers in clinical laboratories, clinical research and also pursued academic research careers and industry-focused careers.

Our 100% online, flexible, clinically-focused course is at the cutting edge of science where you can develop your knowledge and skills in clinical bioinformatics and grow your global network.

Using real-life clinical cases, you'll be taught by an experienced team that has successfully delivered the Clinical Bioinformatics master's programme, with several years' experience educating clinical bioinformaticians training in the NHS.

Our educational ethos at Manchester is dynamic and has centred on co-creation of education with our students and clinical experts, meaning our programmes meet the requirements of clinical bioinformatics and genomic medicine.
