Course summary

Available to those who have already completed our PgDip in Neonatal Medicine, this programme provides a highly marketable academic qualification for healthcare professionals involved in the care of neonates and very young children.

The MSc in Neonatal Medicine is open to medical doctors, nurse practitioners and other health professionals involved in neonatal healthcare. Entry to the dissertation stage for the MSc award requires completion of the Cardiff University Postgraduate Diploma in Neonatal Medicine.

This part-time distance learning course focuses on the study of clinical problems and therapeutic approaches specific to neonatal healthcare. The physiological and anatomical changes that occur during gestation and after birth influence clinical presentation and effective treatment strategies for sick and premature infants. Understanding the scientific basis for neonatal healthcare is vital to clinical decision making and managing the ethical and communication challenges faced by clinical teams every day.

The course aims to prepare clinicians to identify, critically appraise, plan and implement more effective treatments based on a sound knowledge of relevant research evidence, clinical practice, anatomy and pathophysiology.
