Glasgows School of Medicine provides an excellent interface between scientists and clinicians; not only within the School, but between the School and our Research Institutes, and between the School and clinicians in the local health service. Together with existing links between University researchers and those in industry, this makes the School of Medicine uniquely positioned to offer this programme.
This masters degree will equip you for employment in health service laboratories or in the industrial sector, or to undertake future PhD study.
The programme incorporates 3 x 60-credit courses:
* Evidence-Based Medicine & Research (basic research skills, journal clubs, presentation skills); delivered in semester 1
* Research Methodologies course (available as a generic option, or as a variation appropriate to specialism: RM in Diagnostics, RM in Molecular Medicine, RM in Molecular Pathology); focus is on developing knowledge and technical skills relevant to specialism; delivered predominantly in semester 2
* Dissertation Project appropriate to generic or specialist route; practical element commences in May, with write-up in the summer
Teaching methods vary, but for all routes they include lectures, interactive workshops, tutorials and other forms of small-group teaching, practical demonstrations, laboratory work, visits to working labs, and a dissertation project. E-learning components will include provision of online resources and a mechanism for feedback
Assessment is by a variety of methods, including essays, a written exam, oral presentations, and the final dissertation. You will be given practice in relevant skills and provided with formative feedback to help develop these skills.
