"We are what we eat" is a phrase we often hear. This course will aim both to inform and equip the practitioner with the necessary skills to function in a modern clinical environment, specialising in caring for the patient with problems in the gastrointestinal tract, and will be relevant to day-to-day NHS hospital and general practice.
Why Study With Us?
You will receive training in the skills required in the reading and interpretation of the literature and translating that into evidence-based practice.
The course culminates in the Research Dissertation, which will be assessed through your production of two publishable scientific articles. Our aim will be to develop these to publication with you if suitable.
The content of the course is mapped to The Joint Royal Colleges of Physicians Training Board Speciality Training Curriculum for Gastroenterology.
If biomedical or clinical research is your interest, successful completion of the MSc will allow you to directly register onto PhD study and join our team of researchers at the Institute of Medicine.
The Learning Experience
Our course investigates in detail the diagnosis and management of patients with diseases of the intestines, liver and biliary tree, and pancreas complications. You will review current guidelines and their evidence base in the therapeutic management of these conditions, and explore potential new therapies. Seminars and tutorials will be held with various healthcare professionals and clinical researchers. You will also join clinical teams for placements in your chosen specialism for training in a variety of protocols.
The modules run in three-day blocks and are therefore suitable for working doctors and healthcare professionals. Assessment is entirely through coursework. This culminates in the dissertation, which is assessed through your production of two publishable scientific articles. Our aim will be to develop these to publication with you if suitable.
