The course aims to:
- provide formal training for basic scientists and clinicians in the theoretical and practical aspects of the causes and treatment of cancer.
- through the project and dissertation, familiarise you with the research environment, and enable you to develop the skills necessary to undertake independent research.
The MSc Oncology draws on a unique blend of scientific and clinical expertise and experience, and benefits from strong ties that exist between the clinic and laboratory within the Division of Cancer and Stem Cells.
- The course has been running since 1997, and continues to provide up-to-date knowledge and training to its students.
- The course partly fulfils the syllabus requirements for clinicians studying to sit Part 1 FRCR exams. The syllabus also meets the curriculum requirements for Higher Specialist Training in Medical Oncology set out by the Joint Committee on Higher Medical Training. CME Credits are also available.
- The research carried out within Oncology is recognised at an international level.
