MSc in Critical Care


If you are opting to complete an MSc, you will be expected to complete a Masters dissertation in the third year of the programme worth 60 credits.

This will take the form of the planning, execution, and reporting of a significant project. The subject matter must be relevant to the area of clinical medicine and ideally to your own chosen specialty area. 


The dissertation is a self-directed component, and whilst there will be regular contact with a supervisor, there is no formal teaching programme. In conjunction with the course organisers you will identify an appropriate supervisor. You will, where appropriate, work closely with senior staff at your home institution. University of Edinburgh and NHS staff can also act as supervisors.
