The New Clinical Applications Pathway
For academic year 2017-18
Medicine is quickly adopting molecular diagnostic technologies, vaccines and therapies that are the results of recent advances in molecular medicine and they are dramatically improving the way that human diseases can be treated.
For students with a degree in Medicine, we are offering the opportunity to spend a 20-week clinical attachment with a specialist clinical team at the University Hospital, after you have completed the taught part of the MSc in Molecular Medicine.
For 2017-2018, we are offering four Clinical Attachments. These will all be in the area of tropical and infectious diseases, so students taking the pathway will follow the taught Microbes & Infection pathway up to the time of the clinical attachment.
While with the clinical team, you will observe clinical practice in the specialist area and you will focus and report on the advances created by molecular approaches within the speciality to diagnosis, prevention and therapy. For more detail, follow the link.
Places will be limited to four for the Clinical Applications pathway in 2017. You must have a medical degree (MBChB or equivalent). Please indicate in your application that you would like to take the Clinical Applications pathway and list the attachments in order of your preference.
Students with and without medical qualifications are most welcome on the other pathways of the MSc in Molecular Medicine!
For the Clinical Applications pathway, apply specifically for the pathway, as you will need to have a degree in medicine.
For potential applications only for the Clinical Applications pathway of the MSc in Molecular Medicine, please make preliminary contact with the pathway leader Dr Paul Collini PhD MBChB MRCP BSc DTM&H
