In clinical practice, kidney disease is encountered frequently both in primary and secondary care by the non-kidney specialist, especially as it is as a complication of common conditions such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease, so healthcare professionals on the front line need to be equipped with the skills and knowledge to deal with potential nephrology patients confidently and effectively.
The Renal Medicine (Online Delivery) course from University of South Wales content is case based with a clinical focus. And as it’s designed based on extensive research with primary care practitioners, it’s highly relevant and includes the latest developments in renal medicine for front line healthcare professionals.
The MSc is a progression from the Postgraduate Diploma in Renal Medicine, and on completion of the course you will receive an MSc in Renal Medicine from the University of South Wales.

To study over one year you will need to have successfully completed the Postgraduate Diploma in Renal Medicine - either with Diploma MSc or another UK university having completed similar modules. We can discuss this with you as part of your application.
