Course summary

Personalised medicine is the next generation of medicine and healthcare. It aims to improve the management of patients’ health and to target therapies to achieve the best outcomes in the management of a patient’s condition, their predisposition to disease and their prognosis. Personalised healthcare takes a multi-omics approach (one which incorporates data from a range of different sources, including genomic and epigenomic) directed at the development of novel therapies. The content includes a focused set of core modules specialising in all aspects of personalised medicine, including genomics, bioinformatics, statistics and the regulatory aspects of novel therapies such as clinical trial design. Optional modules allow you to explore the applications and scope of personalised medicine. You are given opportunities to develop analytic skills during the programme before undertaking your independent research project.

Careers

This programme aims to equip students for careers in research, education, medicine and business in academic, clinical and industrial settings. Examples of potential careers could include: conducting clinical trials as part of a team of clinicians, scientists and allied health professionals; monitoring and analysing the results of clinical trials as part of a clinical trials unit; developing new therapies or intellectual property in the pharmaceutical industry or other business venture; academic research and/or lecturing in a university or other higher education setting.

Employability

You will be given opportunities to develop specific scientific and analytic skills including skills in decision making, information curation, data gathering, writing scientifically, critical appraisal, scientific presentation skills, debating, maintaining scientific dialogue, experimental design, setting up clinical trials and an awareness of topical and important issues (ethics and the law). Furthermore, you will be encouraged to keep a portfolio of transferable skills learnt through teaching practices and assessments which will prepare you for progression to higher research degrees and/or the workplace.

Optional qualifications

This degree is also available as a PG Diploma and a PG Certificate with fees set accordingly.
