Course Summary

Respiratory medicine is an increasingly important field of medicine, as respiratory disease is a growing cause of morbidity and mortality. The MSc Respiratory Medicine is an online course, run with our collaborative partner Diploma MSc. It allows you to explore and study the major classes of respiratory disease, conduct research in respiratory medicine and have a direct opportunity to improve patient care.

Both the Postgraduate Diploma and MSc courses are aimed at Doctors, GPs, Allied Health Professionals, Practice Nurses or equivalent professional qualifications and background experience. Completion of the MSc Respiratory Medicine course will enhance private practice and will help career progression.


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).

Once the proposal has been approved, the professional project (10,500 words) itself is then completed through online guidance and supervision offered by the tutor.


Students are normally employed as healthcare professionals so work/ study placements would not be suitable.

Completion of the MSc Respiratory Medicine course will enhance private practice and will help career progression. The course gives you the direct opportunity to improve patient care.


The module runs over a 12 week period and is designed to develop skills in critical appraisal and knowledge of research methodologies used in respiratory medicine. The module consists of mandatory formative assessment activities to support your learning and development prior to the professional project module.
