Reproduction and Pregnancy MRes

Course Description

The MRes in Reproduction and Pregnancy (formerly the MRes in Maternal and Fetal Health) is a 12 month Masters course providing first class training in reproductive and pregnancy research.

It is a unique course designed to train those who wish to pursue a research career in reproductive medicine or pregnancy or to work in associated areas in health or science. Students do not need any prior research experience before undertaking this course.

You will undertake two interrelated research projects on a specific topic in reproduction and pregnancy, alongside taught units providing up to date knowledge of reproduction and pregnancy and training in research skills.

The MRes in Reproduction and Pregnancy will provide you with:
- the opportunity to conduct medical research at the clinical-scientific interface.
- experience of running your own research project in a specific area of reproductive or pregnancy research
- hands-on experience of cutting-edge technologies applicable to reproduction and pregnancy, and transferable to other areas of medical research
- an understanding of the latest state of knowledge in reproductive medicine and pregnancy
- training and experience in scientific writing and developing a research proposal
- grounding in a wide range of reproductive medicine and pregnancy related issues by attending seminars in the Maternal and Fetal Health Research Centre
- an opportunity to participate in high quality research at an early career stage and to contribute to public-domain research output

On successful completion of this course you will gain:
- A Masters degree - the majority of our students have achieved a Distinction (58%) or Merit (35%) degree
- In depth knowledge of clinically relevant reproduction and pregnancy research, “from bench to bedside”
- Advanced research skills and experience of running your own research project
- Understanding of the ethical issues and social implications of research in reproduction and pregnancy
- Strong CV for future research or medical career
- Public Domain Output- the majority of students gain public domain output during or after their MRes:
- Conference presentations (national and international conferences)
- Published abstracts
- Published papers: first or co-authored papers
- Awards: e.g. RCOG oral presentation & essay prizes, travel grants

Entry Requirements

The course is open to medical or science graduates and intercalating medical students (after completion of the 3rd or 4th year of medical school). Normally a BSc (1st or 2:1) or MBChB or equivalent is expected from a British university in an appropriate biological or medical subject. For intercalating MBChB students, the minimum criterion for admission is satisfactory achievement in years 1-4 of the undergraduate medical programme with normally no failure at any examination, and research motivation. Applicants with other professional (including midwifery), or research-related, experience will be considered.
