Course Summary

Our part-time Doctor of Medicine degree programmes are aimed at students with a clinical background, who hold a medical qualification that is recognised by the UK General Medical Council (GMC) and are employed in a hospital or institution associated with Medicine at Southampton. You will get the opportunity to study a project that is relevant to your clinical discipline whilst working with a wide variety of both clinical and non-clinical researchers. The University of Southampton is internationally recognised for its work in Life Sciences, of which Medicine plays a huge part. As part of our thriving postgraduate community, you will get the opportunity to collaborate with colleagues from a variety of interdisciplinary areas, as well as the NHS or external funders, on research that is having a direct impact on society.

Assessment:

You will complete a research project which may be in a clinical, laboratory or community setting and will usually have a strong translational focus. Your academic work will be supplemented by comprehensive training in research skills, statistics, critical appraisal and laboratory techniques, and you will also receive training in transferable skills such as communication, presentation skills and academic writing. Your assessment will be through reports, thesis and viva voce.
