Overview

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.

What you will study

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.

You can study the MSc in Renal Medicine over one or two years.

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.

You’ll then complete this MSc in year two.

If you opt to study the two year MSc you will complete the Postgraduate Diploma in Renal Medicine in year one, and then the following in year one.

Once your proposal has been approved you will complete the 10,800 word Professional Project, supervised by your tutor.

Programme Structure

Module One: Research Methodologies and Critical Appraisal
  • You will learn in a similar way to how you learned on the Postgraduate Diploma; however, this module is run over 12 weeks.
  • This module is designed to help students recognise, understand, interpret and apply methods used in healthcare research and critically appraise the various methodologies specific to renal medicine research.
Module Two: Professional Project
  • To produce the professional project you will continue to study online; however, much of the work is self-directed. You will develop your ability to critically appraise specific areas of clinical, research and/or organisational practice and develop skills in independent research, study and writing for publication. You will have a dedicated tutor who you will be expected to interact with every week. You will select a specific project and submit a project summary/proposal of approximately 1,200 words.
