Course Introduction

This MSc is a flagship partnership between the NHS and St George?s, University of London. It is aimed at clinical geneticists in training, delivering bespoke education and training, and recognising the unique needs of an expert workforce in the genomics era. The use of genomic data is revolutionising the NHS, transforming patient diagnosis and treatment. The Clinical Genomics MSc will equip you with the ability and understanding to interpret genomic data when making clinical management decisions. It will also give you the opportunity to undertake a research project and extend your learning to areas of genomics that are of particular interest to you. You will develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes to be able to disseminate your expert knowledge through the wider medical workforce.

The learning objectives will be achieved through a teaching scheme delivered through three key domains: knowledge, skills and attitudes. You will learn through mixture of face-to-face and online teaching, workshops, and self-directed learning through online and library resources. A secure knowledge base will then provide a platform to develop your skills of data interpretation in the context of clinical phenotyping. The assessments have been designed to reflect the knowledge, skills and attributes articulated in the programme. Each module will have its own discrete assessment specifications related to the intended educational aims and learning outcomes of the module mapped to the programme outcomes.
