The MSc in Sexual and Reproductive Medicine course offers progression from the Postgraduate Diploma for those interested in a leadership role within the field. Delivered online, you will be able to learn around existing work commitments.
Run in partnership with Diploma MSc, it has been developed for GPs, doctors, nurses, physicians, pharmacists, and other suitably qualified individuals with an interest in sexual and reproduction medicine.
Teaching methods for this module are similar to the PG Diploma course modules, however it is run over 12 weeks.
Students are expected in the first eight weeks to interact with their tutor on a weekly basis. Students select a specific project and submit a project summary/proposal (approximately 1500 words). Once the proposal has been approved, the professional project (10,500 words) itself is then completed through online guidance and supervision offered by the tutor.
The student and tutor will interact regularly weekly on the dedicated students/tutor discussion area or through any other means of communication deemed appropriate by both parties (telephone/SKYPE/email). Note of any verbal communication with the tutor is recorded in the student's journal by the student.
The fees for this course are available from the Diploma MSc website.
