This programme aims to give you a scientific understanding of the cellular and molecular biology of cancer, its epidemiology and pathology, and to place this in a clinical context. You will then address how this knowledge effects therapeutic approaches and disease management.

It aims to allow you to understand the research process by drawing on examples within the department and its associated clinical trials unit. A key part of this Masters programme is the planning, execution and reporting of a piece of independent study leading to submission of a dissertation.

At all levels we aim to encourage interactive rather than didactic learning and lecturing. Therefore, in addition to assembling and learning facts you will also to consider some of the philosophical challenges which underlie the treatment of cancer.

The programme is studied part time over 2 years and includes a taught element plus a work place based dissertation. This is made up of 4 residential taught modules per year (8 in total).

This course explores the biological basis of age-related musculoskeletal decline and associated pathologies, including factors influencing the decline and interventions to maintain good musculoskeletal health as we age.

With rapidly changing demographics, falling birth rate and increasing life expectancy, we are an ageing population. However, healthy lifespan is not keeping pace with increased longevity and people are living longer but not necessarily in good health.

A significant contributor to ill health in old age is physical frailty and poor musculoskeletal function and health. Osteoarthritis alone affects 6 million people in the UK and the health consequences of low physical activity, in terms of years of life lost, are more significant than those of smoking.

The course is aimed at life science graduates interested in gaining an in depth understanding of the ageing process and how it specifically affects musculoskeletal function and health. It is suitable for those considering a research career as this Masters programme has a significant research component and the course is taught exclusively by active researchers in a national centre of excellence.

Designed also to appeal to allied health professionals, such as physiotherapists, dieticians and those working with the elderly in a clinical context. Supplying students with an in depth understanding of musculoskeletal ageing, equipping them with practical skills to assess and research the topic and learning practical approaches to minimise the impact of ageing on this major body system are the aims of this course.

This programme enables exploration of the theoretical basis of manipulative physiotherapy and its application to the development of your clinical reasoning. Using the process of clinical reasoning as its framework, this programme integrates the many approaches to practice in this specialist area. It facilitates an evaluation of existing evidence through the exploration of the assessment and management of neuromusculoskeletal dysfunction.

The programme offers part-time and full-time modes of study, providing you with the opportunity to tailor your learning experience to meet your personal and professional needs.

As a Birmingham student, you will be joining the academic elite and will have the privilege of learning from world-leading experts, as well as your peers. From the outset you will be encouraged to become an independent and self-motivated learner. We want you to be challenged and will encourage you to think for yourself.

Successful completion of the programme qualifies you for membership of the Musculoskeletal Association of Chartered Physiotherapists (MACP) and recognition by the International Federation of Orthopaedic Manipulative Physical Therapists (IFOMPT).

The Advanced Manipulative Physiotherapy Masters programme offers you:

- a route to membership with the MACP and IFOMPT
- the support of a personal tutor and dissertation supervisor
- easy travel access with a dedicated University train station
- the opportunity to gain advanced level competences in your clinical specialty
- flexible study which can be organised around your other commitments

On completion of the Advanced Manipulative Physiotherapy Masters programme you will have the ability to :

- critically evaluate approaches and methodologies for researching theoretical and practical issues relating to clinical practice
- critically evaluate previous professional development and plan future development within the framework of contemporary healthcare practice
- critically analyse the theoretical and conceptual issues underpinning manipulative physiotherapy and the different approaches
- use clinical reasoning skills to enable the effective management of complex clinical presentations
- formulate a justifiable research design and conduct analytically an investigation to address a given problem
- produce a written report worthy of scrutiny in both academic and clinical settings

The MPH (International) is a strand of the Master in Public Health programme and is aimed at professionals already working in low-and middle-income countries or those aiming in the future to work in health care in such setting.

The MPH (international) is an exit qualification from the MPH programme. Candidates access this strand by applying for the Master in Public Health programme.

This modular multidisciplinary programme in public health offers a Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma or a Master in Public Health. It is an exciting and engaging programme developed in response to Public Health professionals around the world and delivered by global academic and field experts in public health and health systems. The Masters builds upon the well-established and successful Master in Public Health through the addition of modules which contextualise and apply public health topics and skills in terms of low- and middle- income countries.

The MPH (International) degree is an internationally recognised qualification in public health. This course aimed at professionals already working in low- and middle-income countries or those aiming in the future to work in health care in such setting.

It attracts people with a wide range of professional backgrounds, from those who want a career in Public Health to those who just want to learn more about epidemiology and statistics for research or health service evaluation. It is increasingly accessed by students who have completed a primary degree in a related subject and are wondering what to do next.

You will also carry out a dissertation based upon research conducted on low and middle-income country health or health systems topics. These can be conducted based in Birmingham, such as systematic reviews and data analysis of large data bases, or based upon original data collection in the field in immigrant communities living in the UK or in low and middle-income countries (candidates own country or where a supervisor has links). Supervisors are experts in a range of internationally relevant public health topics with projects in numerous low and middle-income countries.

The course is delivered in an environment that combines the pragmatism and ‘can do’ spirit of a modern dynamic health service with the rigour, discipline, and high standards of a premier Russell Group University. The course covers many of the areas necessary for sitting the Part A examination of the Faculty of Public Health.

The MPH (International) programme can be studied either full-time, part-time or over up to five years by flexible learning. Overseas students may only study the MPH (International) full-time. Teaching takes place in one-week blocks.

Field trip work might be covered by supervisor grants but in most cases must be supplied by the students or their sponsors as course fees do not include travel and field work expenses. Supervisors are experts in a range of internationally relevant public health topics with projects in numerous low and middle-income countries.
