War is predicted to be the sixth leading cause of death by 2020. With humanitarian crises and mass casualty events on the rise, specialist training is increasingly important. Undertake this two-year Trauma Sciences (Military and Humanitarian) Online MSc at Queen Mary University of London and develop an understanding of the up-to-date science and practice of military and humanitarian trauma care.


What you'll study

Opportunities for the training of military trauma care specialists are extremely limited, and many defence agencies rely on the deployment situation as the primary training for their personnel. This programme will help you to develop the skills needed in situations of dire emergency and global disaster. 

You can access the programme wherever you are, and you will have the option of a two-week residential summer school in London. The Trauma Sciences (Military and Humanitarian) Online MSc at Queen Mary University of London is a collaboration between the Barts Centre for Trauma Sciences (C4TS) and Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry.

You will have access to an international, expert faculty and innovative, technology-enhanced learning.  You will take part in interactive discussion forums and one-to-one tutor sessions.

You will also be offered an optional two-week residential summer school at the end of the first year in London. The summer school will give you simulated scenario training to complement your learning. You will gain practical knowledge and experience of decision-making so you can deliver safe, professional core clinical functions in the management of seriously injured patients. In your second year of study, you will write a dissertation on a specific area of knowledge, or you may undertake original research.
