The content of the course is mapped to The Joint Royal Colleges of Physicians Training Board Speciality Training Curriculum for Geriatric Medicine.
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.
