Course summary

Overview

The use of genomic data is revolutionising the NHS, transforming patient diagnosis and treatment. The MSc Clinical Genomics will equip you with the ability and understanding to interpret genomic data when making clinical management decisions. It will also give you the opportunity to undertake a research project and extend your learning to areas of genomics that are of particular interest to you. You will develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes to be able to disseminate your expert knowledge through the wider medical workforce.

The MSc Clinical Genomics comprises:

  • Four core modules from the PGCert ICAG (60 credits)
  • A research project, organised by you and flexibly arranged to allow you to undertake it at your base hospital, in Genomics England or at a suitable alternative location (60 credits)
  • Four modules chosen from a range of optional modules that are applicable to Clinical Genetics and reflect your interests (60 credits)

Studying

The aim of the MSc in Clinical Genomics is to help you develop as a self-reliant and autonomous student, capable of independent and novel thinking, with the skills to apply your learning to clinical practice.

Teaching

The learning objectives will be achieved through a teaching scheme delivered through three key domains: knowledge, skills and attitudes. You will learn through mixture of face-to-face and online teaching, workshops, and self-directed learning through online and library resources. A secure knowledge base will then provide a platform to develop your skills of data interpretation in the context of clinical phenotyping. This will primarily be achieved through workshop sessions, assignments and portfolio development. The third domain, attitude, emphasises the need for you to develop the skills to effectively communicate complex genomic data and discuss ethical considerations such as the identification of incidental findings.

Assessment

The assessments have been designed to reflect the knowledge, skills and attributes articulated in the programme. Each module will have its own discrete assessment specifications related to the intended educational aims and learning outcomes of the module mapped to the programme outcomes.
