Top 2 Masters of Science in Pathology 2019

A Master of Science is a graduate degree that is pursued by students who want to work in higher level positions in the science or technology field. Programs are offered at universities all over the world and typically take one to three years to complete.

What is an MSc in Pathology? This program is intended for individuals who want to prevent and cure diseases. Most programs combine study and research training around the pathogenic mechanisms of disease and the application of this knowledge. Examples of course topics include systemic pathology, nutritional toxicology, advanced comparative toxicokinetics, and health physics. Laboratory techniques will include preparing and evaluating human or animal cells using morphologic methods, laser capture techniques, and in situ hybridization.

Students who pursue this path benefit in that they develop analytical problem-solving skills in all areas of medical science. These skills along with lab training prepare students for a number of careers in the biomedical field.

Students should always ask about financial requirements when considering a school for their pathology education. Different factors such as the reputation of the school, duration of the program, and lab fees will affect the overall costs, and getting in touch with the institution directly will answer any questions about tuition and fees.

There are a number of career paths that graduates can pursue with an MSc in Pathology. Different areas of pathology include clinical, forensic, and anatomic. Much of the work performed is done in a laboratory setting in the area of research, although graduates may choose to teach at a university or serve patients through diagnostic medicine. Pathologists are also employed by pharmaceutical companies and government agencies that are associated with public health, agriculture, and law enforcement.

MSc Molecular Pathology of Cancer (Blended Learning)

Molecular Pathology (MP) is a rapidly growing discipline in 21st-century medicine. It integrates genomics and bioinformatics with modern pathology to underpin molecular diagnostics, theranostics and clinical trials delivery within the academic, health services and industry sectors in an era of precision medicine.

These exciting, innovative blended and distance learning programmes are aimed to enhance the participant’s theoretical knowledge and practical skills in MP and to empower them to pursue a career in academia, healthcare or industry. The programmes have a strong focus on innovation and entrepreneurship.

The programmes have been developed with a number of options in order to provide maximum flexibility of training. PgCert Molecular Pathology of Cancer candidates take the three modules delivered between September and January. PgDip candidates can take the Diploma in Molecular Pathology of Cancer and if successful can chose to progress to Masters level instead of graduating with the award. MSc candidates can take the Certificate/Diploma/MSc in Molecular Pathology of Cancer, which will provide a solid foundation for those wishing to study MP at Ph.D. level. The full-time MSc is also available as an intercalated degree for Medical and Dental students.... [-]
