Genomic Medicine

This course follows a curriculum designed by Health Education England and is suitable for healthcare professionals and other students with an interest in Genomic Medicine. As a jointly taught programme delivered by St George's and King's, students will benefit from the breadth of expertise provided by both institutions. Students will learn how recent technological advances have transformed how genetic data is generated, analysed and presented and its relevance to a range of clinical scenarios. This will be a flexible programme, structured to provide options for PGCert and PgDip awards as well as the MSc.

Entry requirements

Applicants should normally have, or be expected to achieve a minimum 2nd Class degree (2.2) in a subject which offers an appropriate grounding in science, healthcare or genetics (or an equivalent overseas qualification). We accept equivalent qualifications gained in other countries. If your qualification is not in English, please arrange for it to be translated by a certified translator before sending it to us. Alternative professional qualifications may be considered. Non-standard candidates may be required to submit supplementary details and/or attend interviews or selection days. Students attending interviews will be asked in advance if they have specific requirements so that reasonable adjustments can be made. Given that some of the candidates may have employment commitments, interviews may also be arranged and conducted via Skype.
