Lead academics: Dr Janine Kirby and Dr Dennis Wang
This course draws on expertise from two University faculties - Medicine, Dentistry and Health, and Science, as well as Sheffield Teaching Hospitals and the Sheffield Genetics Diagnostic Service (Sheffield Children's Hospital NHS Foundation Trust). It's aimed at students as well as professionals from healthcare and science backgrounds.
The syllabus, as outlined by Health Education England (HEE), covers the scope and application of genomics in medicine and biomedical research and considers ethical and genetic counselling aspects that genomic medicine introduces.
The course is taught by academics, scientists and clinicians, using a range of methods. You'll have the opportunity to gain first-hand experience of hypothesis-driven research by carrying out your own project in genomic medicine.
We accept medical students who wish to intercalate their studies. Find out more on the Medical School's website.
