As well as the MSc, the programme is structured flexibly to provide options for PgCert and PgDip awards, which can be tailored to your career or interest. Since genomic medicine is becoming part of clinical practice, if you are an existing healthcare professional looking to upskill, you can also study on a modular basis towards your Continuous Personal and Professional Development.
The Genomic Medicine course from St George's, University of London adopts a patient-centred approach to its education. The optional ‘An Introduction to Counselling Skills in Genomics’ module supports the development of appropriate attitudes and behaviours towards the diagnosis and management of patients whose care will be influenced by genomic investigations. As such, where possible, we will invite representatives from patient groups or someone who has actually been through a genetic process to share their own experience and what it meant to them.
This course is designed for students and healthcare professionals who wish to acquire training in genomic technologies and their interpretation within a medical context. Genomics is an area of rapid change, with a particular skills shortage in the area of bioinformatics, an area you can specialise in through this programme.
An MSc in Genomic Medicine will provide career opportunities for a range of professions, from laboratory-based researchers to diagnostic and healthcare professionals. Our graduates have gone on to work in clinical diagnostics, clinical trials, scientist training programme, bioinformatics, laboratory research assistant, and have continued on to study postgraduate medicine and PhDs.
