Summary

This course draws on expertise from three University faculties – Medicine, Dentistry and Health, Science, and Social Sciences – and the Sheffield Genetics Diagnostic Service (Sheffield Children’s Hospital NHS Foundation Trust). It’s aimed at students as well as professionals from healthcare and science backgrounds. The syllabus, as outlined by Health Education England (HEE), covers the scope and application of genomics in medicine and biomedical research as well as the ethical, social and legal issues relating to this field.

The course is taught by academics, scientists and clinicians. Techniques range from lectures and tutorials to laboratory workshops and online learning packages. You’ll get first-hand experience of hypothesis-driven research by carrying out your own project in genomic medicine.

The MSc Genomic Medicine offers a wide range of delivery methods for providing theoretical knowledge, from lectures, laboratory sessions and tutorials to computer-based analysis workshops as well as the opportunity to gain input from internationally renowned experts in their fields.

The inclusion of problem-based learning is embedded within the course and features in combinations of online and in-person interpretive class formats. Tutorials, seminars and individual meetings with staff provide opportunities for discussion and feedback. Each of the departments delivering the programme fosters an environment that provides many opportunities for individual and group learning.

PG Diploma, PG Certificate and Continuing Professional and Personal Development (CPPD) options are available as entry and exit options on both a full-time or part-time basis.
