Biomedical Blood Science

The main aim of the programme is to provide multidisciplinary, Master's level postgraduate training in biomedical blood science. This will involve building on existing, undergraduate knowledge in basic science and applying it to clinical, diagnostic and research applications relevant to clinical biochemistry, medical immunology and haematology. Intended learning outcomes of the programme reflect what successful students should know, understand or to be able to do by the end of the programme. The overarching course aims are as follows: to develop students' knowledge and understanding of different theoretical perspectives, methodological approaches, research interests and practical applications within blood science; to explore and explicitly critique the clinical, diagnostic and research implications within the fields of clinical biochemistry, medical immunology and haematology, and to place this in the context of a clinical laboratory, fully considering the potential implications for patients, health workers and research alike; to develop a critical awareness of biomedical ethics and to fully integrate these issues into project management including grant application and business planning; to support student autonomy and innovation by providing opportunities for students to demonstrate originality in developing or applying their own ideas; to direct students to integrate a complex knowledge base in the scrutiny and accomplishment of professional problem-solving scenarios and project development; to enable student acquirement of advanced laboratory practical competencies and high level analytical skills; to promote and sustain communities of practice that allow students to share best practice, encourage a multidisciplinary approach to problem-solving and to develop extensive communication skills, particularly their ability to convey complex, underpinning knowledge alongside their personal conclusions and rationale to specialist and non-specialist listeners; to provide students with a wide range of learning activities and a diverse assessment strategy in order to fully develop their employability and academic skills, ensuring both professional and academic attainment.
