Top 19 Masters of Science in Allied Healthcare 2019/2020

A Master of Science degree, abbreviated MSc, is a graduate degree in the field of science. The coordinating programs are available through universities around the world and typically cover science-based subjects, such as engineering and mathematics. However, universities establish many of their own conventions, so some schools may include humanities or social sciences within their MSc programs.

What is an MSc in Allied Healthcare? This broad area of study covers a variety of specific topics, all lumped into the allied healthcare title. Examples of programs may include radiotherapy, medical imaging, biomedical science, hematology and primary care. Each program is unique and expands on the academic achievements completed during the previous years of university work. Some study topics could include statistics and qualitative research methods, atrial fibrillation management, immunohematology, adipose tissue activation in humans, advanced clinical practice requirements and general medical ultrasound practice.

Graduate students in allied healthcare may gain a number of life skills, such as basic good health practices and enhanced first aid. Graduates of these programs may also develop specific skills dealing with aspects of general healthcare that don’t fall directly within their course of study. For example, a nursing student may recognize signs of distress in a pet.

In-person MSc programs in allied healthcare are sure to be found globally, and schools may offer courses online. With so many options in program settings and structure, prospective students would be wise to review costs directly with each school.

As graduates leave their programs in allied healthcare, they may have access to improved possibilities and career advancement. Potential professions may include positions as pharmacy technicians, phlebotomists, dietitians, MRI technologists, cardiovascular technologists, orthotists and occupational therapists. The level of employment opportunities will generally increase as graduates put in the necessary work to earn specific licensing after graduating from their programs.

The path to a successful career often begins with the right educational background. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

Programme description

In the veterinary management of animals, anaesthesia (rendering animals unconscious to permit procedures) and analgesia (reducing the pain an animal is suffering) have vital importance in improving animal welfare, as well as permitting the ongoing developments in medical and surgical advances.

Knowledge and advances in anaesthesia over the last 20 years have been considerable. We can use techniques to block sensation locally or over a region of the body, not just total unconsciousness. We have an array of drugs and methods of drug administration available to us in our fight against pain. Anaesthesia has always carried risks, and we have an increasing availability of monitoring equipment to help us monitor the physiological function of the body during anaesthesia with the aim of reducing morbidity and mortality in our animals....
