Masters degrees in Medicine offer advanced training in a range of medical and healthcare disciplines. Some are part of a professional qualification pathway. Others provide development opportunities for existing medical practitioners.
Taught programmes are available to develop theoretical knowledge and practical expertise in specific areas, with the option to take highly specialised medical degree such as the ChM (Master of Surgery). Alternatively, you could embark on a broader academic research project with an MRes or MPhil in Medicine.
Some of these degrees are specifically designed as professional development programmes, aimed at qualified doctors and other medical practitioners. Others will be open to a broader pool of postgraduates seeking to specialise in an area of medical science.
Your career choices with a Masters in Medicine may depend on your professional and academic background. If you already have existing medical qualifications, further postgraduate training will allow you to specialise and perhaps move into a different area of medical practice.
Alternatively, a Masters in Medicine may be part of your route into the medical profession (combined with an appropriate undergraduate medical degree and practical training placements). Opportunities also exist in adjacent, non-clinical, fields. You could work in hospital management and administration, or help expand and promote the work of important medical charities with initiatives such as cancer research, organ donation and global health efforts.
If your interests are more academic, a research-focussed programme could help prepare you for a PhD and a career with a university medical department or research centre.
