Course summary

Overview

This course follows a curriculum designed by Health Education England and is suitable for healthcare professionals and other students with an interest in genomic medicine. As the programme is jointly taught by St George’s and King’s, students will benefit from the breadth of expertise provided by both institutions.

This qualification is awarded by St George’s and taught in partnership with King’s College London. Both institutions are NHS preferred providers.

You will learn how recent technological advances have transformed how genomic data is generated, analysed and presented, and its relevance to a range of clinical scenarios, as well as how to handle such big data.

Development of knowledge and skills in these areas will enable healthcare professionals to deliver services aligned with the values of the NHS constitution. Life science graduates may use this as a stepping stone to a range of careers including in the NHS, the pharmaceutical industry, and bioinformatics, or as preparation for a PhD. This is a flexible programme is structured to provide options for PgCert and PgDip awards as well as the MSc or, if you prefer, modular study towards your Continuous Personal and Professional Development (CPPD).

Teaching

Teaching will be delivered at both St George’s and King’s College London and will include a variety of methods including lectures, seminars, workshops and online formats.

Progress throughout the course will be assessed through a variety of methods, including multiple-choice questions, short answer questions, essays and oral presentations.

Face-to-face teaching for each module typically occurs across four or five consecutive working days (see the module dates). Teaching will combine a mixture of lectures, to provide key theory and concepts, and interactive tutorials and workshops, allowing you to apply your new knowledge and skills.

Careers

This course is designed for students who wish to acquire training in genomic technologies and their interpretation within a medical context.

An MSc in Genomic Medicine will provide career opportunities for a range of professions, from laboratory-based researchers to diagnostic and healthcare professionals. Our graduates have gone on to work areas such as in clinical diagnostics and in bioinformatics, and have continued on to study postgraduate medicine.
