This programme develops research skills that are applicable to a wide range of problems in clinical and epidemiological settings. Emphasis is given to the scientific and empiric evidence for diagnosis, management and control of the most prevalent diseases in developing countries, with particular reference to high burden diseases such as tuberculosis, HIV and malaria, from a public health and clinical perspective. However, the programme does not include a clinical attachment and teaching at the bedside. Following a taught component, participants complete a dissertation including a period of applied research either overseas or in Liverpool.


LSTM education courses are taught within a dynamic environment by staff working at the cutting-edge of research in tropical medicine and global health. They are designed to enable the professional development of the student, to be relevant to students from both the UK and overseas and to promote approaches to study that will enable students to continue their learning into the future. 

This course aims to: 

Provide doctors with previous experience in high burden diseases with research skills relevant to tropical and infectious diseases in low income countries.

Develop students’ knowledge and comprehension of the preventive and curative management strategies that promote health and well-being in tropical countries.

Enable students to comprehend and conduct health-related research.

Produce graduates who are experienced, committed, informed, proactive and effective professionals, capable of taking substantial and leading professional roles.

Facilitate high quality learning that is informed by critical analysis of current research.

Develop independent and reflective approaches to study that will enable graduates to continue to learn in the future.


The MSc Tropical and Infectious Diseases (MTID) provides a wide range of skills and training for doctors planning academic and clinical careers in resource-poor settings with endemic disease. It is an excellent qualification for doctors who wish to work in the field of health research in either a clinical or community context, as well as with international organisations specialising in health assistance-related activities. This MSc is a great springboard into clinical academic routes, previous students have been successful in Wellcome Trust Clinical PhD Fellowships. Also, many students have had their research projects published in peer reviewed journals, enhancing their standing in the academic research environment.


Why LSTM? the reputation of the institution and the calibre of the people who are on the faculty here and I know from lots of people who I've met through my work in Infectious Diseases that LSTM's got a great reputation for teaching. (Dr David Barr, student 2015. Following the course, David is now a Wellcome Trust PhD Fellow researching TB in South Africa)
