Medical Studies

The completion of a Master of Science degree, commonly abbreviated MSc, is preceded by the rigorous study and mastery of a chosen discipline. Conferment of the diploma is an accomplishment that allows you to pursue work or further education in the field.

What is an MSc in Medicine? An MSc in Medicine is a program that prepares students to study, observe and eventually practice medicine. The program is generalized and allows students to focus on the broad application of medicine in healthcare rather than specializing in a narrower field. The courses you may take include Biology, Anatomy and Physiology, Medical Practices and Procedures and Patient Care Principles. In addition to these classes, you can expect to enroll in an internship or clinical experience program that takes place in a healthcare setting. This will give you the opportunity to practice the medical concepts learned in your coursework.

Since an MSc in Medicine is designed to be a general graduate-level course of study, it benefits students by giving them the foundational knowledge needed to practice in any healthcare setting. You may also find that its general nature allows for the opportunity to explore more specific interests later.

The cost of attendance for the program will depend on a variety of factors. If you would like to obtain a summary of the tuition and fees, contacting the admissions office of the school you wish to attend is the best method of doing so.

An MSc in Medicine should provide you with the knowledge, training and experience needed to pursue a position as a healthcare provider. Additional training and licensure will be required for most specialized positions, but the degree may make it easier to complete those steps. You might also find that you can work in a laboratory or government agency with the degree, but if you want to work outside of a hands-on setting, you will likely be able to find work teaching or writing on the topic of medicine.

Some institutions allow students to earn the MSc in Medicine degree through online or part-time classes. To learn more, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

Learn All About Health Risk Assessment

In the course of our day-to-day life, we come into contact with a vast number of chemical, biological, and physical agents that could do us harm. These agents are present in the air we breathe, the water we drink, and even the food we eat. We encounter them when we travel and when we work or when we use consumer goods such as cosmetics or electrical equipment. Determining the source of these risks, and quantifying their effects, requires cooperation by experts across a host of different disciplines. Our Master’s programme in Toxicology and Environmental Health has been designed with this in mind, training you in the fundamentals of toxicology, environmental epidemiology, emerging toxicological agents such as nanoparticles and zoonotic components, and exposure assessment. This programme will enable you to assess the risks present in the workplace or the food chain. The multidisciplinary nature of this programme means that you will have the flexibility to specialise in a particular field or undertake more generalist training in risk assessment. You may also take part in experimental research in the fields of neurotoxicology, immunotoxicology, allergies, in vitro toxicology, endocrine toxicology, environmental toxicology, and chemistry. Alternatively, you may wish to undertake practical work in environmental or occupational exposure assessment engaging in activities such as exposure modelling or in-depth analysis of samples taken from a variety of sources. As a graduate of this programme, you will be qualified to assess the impact of toxicological agents on populations or work... [-]
