Course summary

The Genomic Medicine programme covers all aspects of genomic science and medicine, and will equip you with the knowledge and skills to be able to interpret and understand genomic data that increasingly impacts on service delivery to patients and the community.

The programme is aimed at students from a wide range of backgrounds, from basic scientists to all levels of healthcare professionals, and will provide a flexible, multi-disciplinary and multi-professional perspective in genomics, applied to clinical practice and medical research.

The training provided covers all aspects of genomic science and medicine (not merely DNA sequencing or detection of genetic variation), undertaken in one of the most cutting-edge scientific environments. The programme runs successfully through a combination of educational materials and opportunities to interact online alongside more traditional teaching methods. This blended format of delivery consists of teaching sessions (face-to-face or made available online), live webinars, discussion fora, formative and summative assessments administered through our virtual learning environment, and a range of resources to facilitate self-study and progression. This allows for much of the programme to be studied remotely if required.

Following this degree, many of our students have continued to clinical and non-clinical PhDs, to graduate medical degrees, graduate roles in industry and to the NHS Scientific Training Programme. We also have a large number of part-time students who are keen to develop their application of genomic medicine within their current professional role.

The programme includes collaborations with:

  • the Institute of Cancer Research (providing the core Cancer Genomics Module)
  • Brunel University London (providing the optional Economic Evaluation in Human Genomics Module).

Staff from the Institute of Cancer Research and Brunel University London may also co-supervise research projects.
