Diploma MSc is an award-winning provider of online medical education for Postgraduate Diploma and Masters courses. We are delighted to announce the addition of a Postgraduate Diploma course in Genomic Medicine & Healthcare to our growing range of courses. As with our other programmes, we are delivering this course in partnership with the University of South Wales, who have built a strong reputation for delivering innovative learning.
This course will be of interest to health professionals in the UK and internationally who wish to integrate such advances into their practice and will provide a solid foundation in the core concepts of genetics and genomics applied to modern medicine and healthcare. Although there are other courses covering the subject area, none are completely online so they are difficult and costly for global healthcare professionals to get involved. This course will reach an international audience in a cost effective, flexible and inclusive way, helping to develop a worldwide network of genomic medical and healthcare leaders.
This course is well timed given increasing public and professional interests in genetic and genome-level diagnostic and predictive testing for clinical management, disease risk evaluation, prevention of major complications and offering the prospect of improved prognosis. Personalised benefits include the option for reproductive choices and reducing life-time medical or health risks by judicious use of new emerging preventive medicines and devices combined with lifestyle/behaviour modifications.
The new course will be developed to be inclusive of the specific needs and perspectives of international students from the new and emerging economies of the BRICS nations (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa) and other developing countries. These countries do not have the benefit of NHS/UK-style healthcare and often genetic services are limited or absent. Most patients and families have to depend on the skills and competencies of the medical and health professionals immediately available to them and few of these individuals are equipped to advise on, or manage complex issues associated with inherited genetic disorders.
Health professionals, both UK and overseas, wishing to further their education who have previously completed a Postgraduate Diploma in Diabetes from the University of South Wales are eligible to apply for this course.
