Master’s degree programs are designed to upgrade a student’s knowledge of a specific subject or industry. They often prepare graduates for advanced job positions as well as doctoral degree programs, should they choose to take the next step in their education.  

What is a Masters in Cancer Medicine? Cancer is one of the most problematic conditions in the medical world. Due to the nature of cancer and how rapidly it can change and mutate, this program focuses on the study and treatment of cancer in its many forms. While not considered a medical degree, this program can prepare students for careers in translational medicine and how to improve the quality of life for those living with cancer. Courses usually focus on the research and treatment of cancer, how to interact with patients who have been diagnosed with more serious forms of cancer, as well as the proper way to interact with hospital administrators and medical professionals.

There are a good deal of reasons why a student might try to obtain a master’s degree in cancer medicine. Students who have completed a bachelor’s program in biology or social sciences can continue their educations with cancer medicine in order to receive additional training in a specific field of research.

The exact cost of this program will vary depending on the university. On average, this program can last anywhere from one to two years.

Before enrolling in a program for cancer medicine, a student must have received a bachelor’s degree in a relevant field. Often, it is recommended that a student have a degree in biology or social sciences. Obtaining a Master in Cancer Medicine can allow an individual to walk a wide range of career paths. These professions include cancer research and the improvement of cancer therapies and quality of life for patients in hospitals.

A wide number of programs exist internationally for those interested in pursuing a master’s degree in cancer medicine. These courses can be taken in person or, if money is a concern, there are also online options available through many reputable institutions. To get started with a course, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

The MSc(Res) in Cancer Medicine will provide students with new knowledge of how precision medicine can improve and shape future healthcare. Students will gain hands-on experience of molecular techniques and the equipment/devices used in a modern molecular laboratory; the course will provide training in laboratory and research skills that are applicable across multiple scientific disciplines in a supportive learning environment. Central to this research-intensive programme is a 38-week Research Project (which runs throughout both semesters) where students undertake hands-on research training within active research teams. Through taught modules students will be able to evaluate how novel therapeutic approaches can be used to stratify patients into treatment groups for better clinical management (stratified / precision medicine). They will observe the delivery of precision medicine through tours of the Northern Ireland Cancer Centre. -

The Oncology Drug Discovery MSc (Res) course is designed to provide an insight into how existing and future drug targets are identified from biological samples isolated from the cancer clinic. This will include an industrial viewpoint into what makes an interesting target and how, through an iterative process, this target is validated. In addition, lectures will be provided to discuss how ‘hit’ compounds are identified, in both the academic and industrial setting, using compound screen assays and fragment-based screening technologies. We will also provide an insight into computational methods for generating chemical ‘hits’. The module will also cover how these ‘hit’ compounds are prosecuted into tool compounds or Lead Optimisation candidates (LO), both historic and modern, that are used to further validate a potential drug target. -
