This vocational training programme has been developed to appeal to recent biology, biomedical, biochemistry and medical graduates who aspire to develop a career in the field of clinical embryology and assisted reproductive technology (ART) and/or the associated reproductive sciences. Read more

Introduction and Course Objectives

This vocational training programme has been developed to appeal to recent biology, biomedical, biochemistry and medical graduates who aspire to develop a career in the field of clinical embryology and assisted reproductive technology (ART) and/or the associated reproductive sciences. The programme has been developed by the Division of Reproduction and Early Development within the Leeds Institute of Genetics, Health and Therapeutics in association with the clinicians and embryologists working at the Leeds Centre of Reproductive Medicine in the Leeds NHS Trust. The programme leaders have over 20 years of experience of training clinical embryologists, reproductive medicine practitioners and reproductive scientists.

This is a laboratory-based science degree not a clinically- based infertility treatment course. The programme will provide students with a detailed knowledge of the theory and practices that underpin human clinical embryology and ART. The curriculum covers: the cell and molecular biology of human reproduction, fertility, andrology and embryology; the management and efficient running of an ART laboratory; the practices, genetic and epigenetic concepts of micromanipulation and techniques such as intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) and pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD); advances in cryobiology and its application to gamete and embryo freezing and fertility preservation. It will also provide graduates with valuable insights into the theory underpinning clinical treatments and the ethical and legal controversies surrounding assisted reproduction in humans. The programme will equip graduates to pursue a career in human assisted reproduction (e.g. clinical embryology, infertility treatment) and/or research in the reproductive sciences.

The programme places a strong emphasis on all aspects of practical training for clinical embryology and assisted reproduction technology. Masters students will be tutored in research methods. They will receive hands-on training from specialist practitioners in andrology, gamete handling, IVF, ICSI, embryo culture, gamete and embryo freezing, vitrification, biopsy. Students will interact with established, clinical embryologists and reproductive medicine specialists.

Course Content:

The course will comprise the following compulsory modules:

• Fundamentals of Clinical Embryology;
• IVF and Embryo Culture;
• Micromanipulation;
• Cryobiology and Cryopreservation;
• Ethics and Law for Embryologists;
• Research in Reproduction, Embryology and Assisted Reproduction Technology

Course Delivery

This programme is delivered using a blended learning approach which combines lectures, seminars, tutorials, interactive group discussions, presentations and problem based learning sessions /case studies with self directed learning. The theoretical training is complimented by the conduct of original research and by laboratory-based practical sessions. The course content is further enhanced by an extensive array of online resources and by the provision of printed versions of all module workbooks. Course assessments will include essays, presentations, projects, practical log books, a research dissertation and examinations.

Medical Imaging impinges on virtually every facet of clinical practice and is one of the key elements in diagnosis, monitoring of and in some cases guiding of therapy. Read more
Medical Imaging impinges on virtually every facet of clinical practice and is one of the key elements in diagnosis, monitoring of and in some cases guiding of therapy. Knowledge of the appropriateness and limitations of the various techniques for imaging is therefore an important skill for clinical scientists, healthcare professionals and clinicians.

It is as well to emphasise at this stage that the programmes offered in Medical Imaging are not clinical courses. However, the teaching of the technical aspects of the various imaging modalities will be firmly grounded in the clinical usage of those modalities. Many of the lecturers are also at the forefront of research in their particular field and will bring insights from, not just current imaging practice but, imaging techniques which are currently in their infancy.

An MSc and a PGDip are offered in Medical Imaging; you are allowed to transfer from your original programme, to another one, provided that you do this before you have completed the programme and before an award has been made. Part time study is also an option. Please contact us on for information on this.

Course Aim

This MSc is designed not only for recent graduates preparing for a career in medical imaging, but also for professionals already working in the field. It aims to cover all aspects of medical imaging, from the basic physics involved, through the different modalities, to the current issues involved in working in a modern UK NHS radiology department.

Objectives - By the end of the MSc programme students should be able to:
•Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the physical and mathematical aspects of image formation of several techniques;
•Identify the anatomical and physiological properties of tissue associated with image formation and contrast for several techniques;
•Analyse and compare the technical performance of various modalities;
•Demonstrate an understanding of the clinical applications of each technique, the variables involved and how they can be compared;
•Critically analyse the optimisation of combinations of imaging modalities for specific patient groups;
•Analyse the equipment and staff management issues associated with the use of modern technology in modern clinical practice;
•Apply IT in literature searching, analysis and display of data, and report writing to enhance life-long learning in medical imaging;
•Demonstrate enhancement of their professional skills in communication, problem-solving, learning effectively and quickly, and effective self-management;
•Critically evaluate relevant published work, demonstrating an understanding of the underpinning principles of statistics, project design and data analysis;
•Plan and implement a research project.
