Postgraduate Taught Programmes

The following postgraduate taught degree programmes are currently available. They are also available as CPD courses.

MSc in Primary Care and MSc in Heath Care Ethics and Law: History of Medicine.

This module is a one-week intensive course occasionally held in February and is also available to Occasional Students as an academic week-long introduction to the history of medicine and is also available as a module within other postgraduate taught degree programmes in the College of Medical and Dental Sciences. This module was successfully pioneered as a CPD programme.

Postgraduate Research

As well as being a Unit of excellence in the teaching of the history of medicine to medical undergraduate and postgraduate students, plenty of opportunities exist for postgraduate research students to undertake research based upon the Unit’s research strengths and current projects.The Centre is particularly keen to supervise projects which concentrate on the history of medical institutions, occupational health, child health and medical education. It is possible to work towards the degree of MPhil, MLitt and PhD by research, and for some clinicians, MD by research. The Unit currently has seventeen postgraduate research students who have now forged themselves into a vibrant community.
