Course Description


This is a vocationally-oriented course that is specifically designed for those doctors and health professionals wishing to gain the skills to practice as an expert witness. It also provides an excellent grounding for those looking to undertake MPhil or PhD research.

Why study with us?

The Institute of Medicine was founded in 2014 and works closely with the NHS to create new medical courses at Bachelor’s, Master’s and Doctoral levels, in order to push forward the boundaries of medical education and research in Cheshire and Shropshire.
