The MTID has emphasis on the diagnosis, management and control of the most prevalent diseases in developing countries. This is an exciting programme that will provide you with new insights into working in a very challenging but rewarding area of medicine.
Alumni from this programme have become well established clinicians, pursued international careers (eg WHO and MSF) or have become leading researchers in their field. The programme (previously called the Masters in Tropical Medicine) has particular reference to high burden diseases such as tuberculosis, HIV, malaria, respiratory infections and diarrhoea. Emphasis is also given to the development of research skills applicable to a wide range of problems in clinical and epidemiological settings and participants complete a short project overseas. The study location depends on the nature of the project and the participant’s interest. Recent locations have included Brazil, Ethiopia, Yemen, Nepal and Nigeria.Key Facts
