The aim of the MSc Clinical Neuroscience is to give students a unique understanding of the principles underlying the clinical presentation and investigation of diseases affecting the brain. Emphasis is given to translation from basic science to clinical practice. The course is suitable for students particularly interested in neuroscience and its applications to neurological or psychiatric diseases.

KEY BENEFITS
* Programme provides a deep and detailed understanding of brain diseases.
* Emphasis on translation from basic science to clinical practice.
* Designed to introduce the basic scientific concepts upon which clinical symptoms, signs and practice are based.

PURPOSE
Provides students with a unique understanding of the underlying principles of neurological symptoms, signs, investigations and diseases. Particular emphasis is given to translation from basic science to clinical practice. Suitable for degree holders in medicine and professions allied to medicine. Will equip graduates with the tools for the next stage of their career either clinically or if pursuing research eg PhD.

DESCRIPTION
The programme enables trainees in neurology, psychiatry and related health-care disciplines to study the anatomical, physiological and pathological basis of symptoms and signs of brain disorders.

The course aims to: provide in-depth knowledge and skills related to specialist clinical practice; develop a detailed understanding of; systematically integrate advances in genetics, molecular neuroscience, electrophysiology and neuroimaging into clinical practice; work independently within a multidisciplinary environment; work at an advanced level to develop and sustain evidence-based practice; appraise and conduct clinical research and audit; critically evaluate their own and others' research.
