Course summary

Course description

Lead academic: Dr Jennifer Walsh MBChB PhD FRCP FHEA

This unique one-year programme provides access to modules, placements and experts from three universities. The course is run by the Centre for Integrated research into Musculoskeletal Ageing (CIMA) and funded by the Medical Research Council and Arthritis Research UK.

CIMA is a collaboration between the University of Sheffield, the University of Liverpool and the University of Newcastle. Although you'll be registered at the University of Sheffield, you'll enjoy modules, placements and an expert supervisory team from all three sites.

The course provides multidisciplinary research training on the musculoskeletal system as a whole in the context of ageing. You'll focus on the functionality of bones, joints, ligaments and muscles as they age and learn about the prevention and treatment of age-related clinical disorders. Topics range from basic science to clinical aspects, from in vitro to in vivo models, and from the latest advances in the assessment of the musculoskeletal system to lifestyle interventions.

This MRes is ideal preparation for a PhD and for those interested in following career paths in Orthopaedics, Geriatrics, Sports and Exercise Science, Rheumatology, Physiotherapy, Bioengineering.

Musculoskeletal ageing is fast becoming one of the key global health challenges of the future, with increasing demand for experts in the field, so the course has a strong focus on employability. We'll train you to take ownership of the development of your own skills, advise you as you choose activities specific to your own needs and support you as you create an e-portfolio of your work. We have strong links with industry and can even offer you the chance to have industrial mentoring.
