The MSc in Haematology is designed to enable you to develop an up-to-date, advanced understanding of the disorders of blood and blood-forming tissues. Utilising critical analytical skills, you will evaluate new developments in research into the blood sciences.
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. We aim to develop your research and writing skills so that you will be in a position to contribute to the scientific literature in an effective manner.
The course culminates in the Research Dissertation, which will be assessed through your production of two publishable scientific articles.
The content of the course is mapped to The Joint Royal Colleges of Physicians Training Board Speciality Training Curriculum for Haematology.
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 mechanistic models of haematopoiesis and how knowledge of stem cell theory can inform the treatment of anaemia or leukaemia. Blood carries many hormones and cytokines; these can be used as biomarkers of disease, and we will examine the problems associated with some of these measurements. You will also review current guidelines and their evidence base in the therapeutic management of haematological problems, and explore potential new therapies.
The programme is modular with six taught modules – each worth 20 credits. The course culminates in a 60-credit Research Dissertation.
Evidence Based Medicine Analysis and Interpretation of Clinical Data Clinical Medicine Blood Sciences Clinical Immunology and Microbial Pathogenesis Therapeutic Advances in Treating Haematological Problems Research Dissertation
Our modules run in three-day blocks, and are therefore suitable for biomedical scientists, working doctors and healthcare professionals. Assessment is entirely through coursework. This culminates in a 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.
If biomedical or clinical research is your interest, successful completion of the MSc will allow you to directly register onto MD/PhD study and join our team of researchers at the Institute.
