This programme is designed to give graduates specialist knowledge (both theoretical and practical) of the strategies and techniques of medical microbiology as practised in research and clinical contexts. Graduates will gain up-to-date, relevant and applied experience of medical microbiology, acquire in-depth knowledge together with a broad knowledge of the subject base and acquire skills for practice at Higher Specialist level. The completion of a research project enables the graduate to understand the process and communication of scientific enquiry.
