Blood Sciences

This MSc is for biomedical scientists registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) who want to undertake flexible, part-time study towards a masters qualification in a specialist area of clinical pathology. The degree programme has been informed by consultation with laboratory managers and NHS training staff. It consists of specialist modules in the blood sciences that explore the theoretical, applied and professional aspects of clinical haematology, transfusion science and biochemistry.
