The Master of Medical Sciences (MMedSc) programme provides structured training in basic medical and clinical disciplines to enable postgraduates to embark on specialist studies, practice or teaching for career and personal development. Other objectives are to provide a bridging mechanism for preclinical and clinical studies, and to promote integrated training in the fundamentals of basic and applied medical sciences.
MMedSc candidates are required to complete 12 credit units of Core Courses (i.e. 4 Core Courses), 18 credit units of Specialised Courses in their chosen Specialised Field of Study and a research project leading to a dissertation in a chosen specialty. Students are also required to attend the Induction Courses on (a) Dissertation Writing (7.5 hours), and (b) Clinical Trials and Biostatistics (2.5 hours). The full-time MMedSc programme is of one year duration, but there are provisions for part time two-year day-release candidates. The configuration of the programme permits those not seeking the MMedSc qualification to take only selected Core or Specialised Courses.
