We are always expanding our postgraduate portfolio. Here you'll find details of some possible new programmes that we may launch in the near future.
We are hoping to develop an online distance learning postgraduate programme in Anatomical Sciences. The programme will be ideal for practitioners in professions allied to medicine such as physiotherapists, radiographers, paramedics, biomedical researchers or medical graduates who seek to gain a more extensive knowledge and understanding of the anatomical sciences and human anatomy.
The University of Edinburgh, Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and NHS Education for Scotland are considering launching two new postgraduate opportunities for supporting clinical ophthalmology in the multidisciplinary management of eye disease in primary and secondary care environments.
The MSc in Primary Care Ophthalmology will be aimed at optometrists, ophthalmology trainees and other professionals with a relevant ophthalmic background.
The Master of Surgery (ChM) in Clinical Ophthalmology is designed to support advanced ophthalmology trainees seeking formal postgraduate training.
We are considering developing a Master’s programme in Global Public Health, by distance learning, which will complement our successful on-campus MPH and online distance learning Global Health Master's programmes.
If you're interested in studying an online MPH, please fill in our short survey, and leave your contact details at the end if you wish to be kept informed of the programme as it develops.
A new online programme in Global eHealth is currently being developed under the auspices of CPHS and the Global Health Academy (subject to approval).
This modular and interdisciplinary programme will allow students to acquire in depth knowledge of eHealth from an international perspective and with reference to issues for global development. Foundational courses will cover key concepts and methods in health informatics, global health challenges, eHealth policies and international health systems. These will be complemented by a programme of interdisciplinary options covering digital health innovations with reference to effectiveness, sociological and cultural aspects of implementation, ethical and governance issues and business processes. While evidence-based eHealth will be a pervasive theme through the programme, completion of the module in Research Methods for eHealth will be a core requirement for progression to the MSc project.
The programme is expected to appeal to clinicians, eHealth implementation personnel, allied health practitioners, NGOs, eHealth policymakers, innovators and technologists, and academic researchers. All modules will be credit bearing and may be used towards a certificate, diploma or masters qualification, depending on the duration of study (one, two or three years).
We have set up a short survey and would be delighted to hear from anyone interested in online postgraduate study in Global eHealth. Your feedback will help shape the content and structure of this new programme, and there is an opportunity to leave your contact details so we can keep you up to date on any developments.
In collaboration with the European Association of Cardiothoracic Anaesthesiologists (EACTA), the University of Edinburgh is considering developing an online distance learning programme in Cardiothoracic Anaesthesia and Critical Care.
The programme would be ideal for those currently undergoing training in cardiothoracic anaesthesia who wish to develop their knowledge and understanding of the subject through a formal qualification. It may also be attractive to those who have completed their training and hold substantive posts but wish to fulfil continuing medical education requirements or obtain a formal qualification in Cardiothoracic Anaesthesia and Critical Care.
We have set up a short survey and are keen to hear from anyone interested in online postgraduate study in Cardiothoracic Anaesthesia and Critical Care. Your feedback will help shape the content and structure of this new programme, and there is an opportunity to leave your contact details so we can keep you up to date on any developments.
We are looking at developing an on-campus Masters programme in Clinical Embryology. The programme would be aimed at students with relevant academic and/or professional experience who are keen to pursue a career as a clinical embryologist. The programme would be suitable for those with a professional/academic background in biomedical sciences, life sciences or medicine.
If you are interested this programme, we'd be grateful if you could complete our survey - please leave your contact details at the end if you wish to be kept informed of the programme as it develops.
