The MMed enables experienced, qualified doctors to develop an evidence- based approach to health care practice and to obtain a postgraduate qualification whilst enhancing clinical expertise in a specific discipline of medicine.
The programme has been designed in collaboration with senior clinicians and academics and is at the cutting edge of both contemporary medical practice and research. It will allow you to extend your knowledge and skills to advanced levels within your dedicated area of work.
What will I study?
This programme consists of two 30 credit clinical research modules, a 60 credit work-based learning module and a 60 credit dissertation. Topics covered will include:
Innovative aspects of evidence based practice in the medical speciality – the application of advanced knowledge of physiology, pathology, microbiology and imaging. The aim is to enable you to acquire an advanced understanding of the process of service innovation in the relevant subject area;
Qualitative and quantitative research methods;
Critiquing research findings;
Writing a research proposal;
Analysis of quantitative data;
Research governance and ethics;
Focus on a significant piece of investigative enquiry from conceptualisation through to completion.
Medical professionals need to continually seek ways to improve their career prospects in an increasingly competitive job market where a postgraduate qualification is often now deemed essential.
The MMed provides a highly relevant qualification for doctors working in a specialist area of medicine which will add to your portfolio of qualifications and provide you with opportunities for professional development supported by expert clinicians and academics.
In addition to having a medical degree, you will also need to be registered with the General Medical Council to work in the UK or alternatively have successfully applied for an International Training Fellowship. You should have attained a higher postgraduate qualification (for example, MSc or equivalent) and have current experience in the appropriate medical specialty. An interview will form part of the selection process. Employment may be arranged in conjunction with the programme of study or alternatively you may already be in full-time employment in the UK.
