Course Summary

The MSc Gastroenterology, run in partnership with Diploma MSc, has been designed to help physicians further their knowledge of gastroenterology and improve their clinical judgement. A progression route from the Postgraduate Diploma course in Gastroenterology, this theoretical online course is designed to facilitate a better understanding of common gastroenterology disorders typically found in the community and enable students to up skill in diagnostic and management of gastroenterological disorders. What's more, students will be better equipped to read and interpret endoscopy reports, an increasingly important element of practice.

This online Masters course does not assess or develop endoscopic procedures (as this would require residential training and supervision) but is designed to improve knowledge, which is an essential complement to clinical practice. With increasing competition for employment in the healthcare arena, and increasing specialisation, the purpose of the gastroenterology course is to promote and enhance professional skills and knowledge that have a direct relevance and application to the demands of working roles.

Assessment

Students are expected in the first 8 weeks to interact with their tutor on a weekly basis. Students select a specific project and submit a project summary/proposal (approximately 1,500 words).

Careers

It is likely that healthcare professionals with a MSc Gastroenterology will enjoy career progression, as well as increased opportunity to improve patient care.

Modules

Run over 12 weeks, this module is designed to help students recognise, understand, interpret and apply methods used in healthcare research and critically appraise the various methodologies specific to Gastroenterology research.
