MSc in Patient Safety (New)
Patient safety has become an increasing topic of focus at all levels of the health system, domestically and internationally and in the UK, the focus on patient safety has never been stronger. In the past five years, a number of important milestones – the NHS Constitution and the Five Year Forward View, just to name a few – have catapulted the patient safety agenda to the forefront of UK healthcare.
The Centre for Health Policy's new MSc in Patient Safety has been designed specifically to support policy makers and clinical and managerial healthcare professionals to deliver safe care and champion for safer health systems.

Medical robotics and image-guided intervention are two technology-led areas of medicine that have experienced tremendous growth and improvement over the last 20 years. This has been driven partly by improving less invasive and harmful surgical treatments. This new course makes the most of the Hamlyn Centre’s unique research facilities and multidisciplinary environment. Students will learn about this field through taught courses and then apply their knowledge and skills to medical and surgical problems in a nine-month research project.
MRes in Microbiome in Health and Disease
With the rapid growth of research and interest into the microbiome, there is an increasing demand for people trained in this important area.

Students will learn about multidisciplinary approaches to systemic understanding of the gut microbiome and developing new targets for disease prevention and treatment, and apply these approaches in two research projects. The course will equip you with the key skills needed to plan, conduct, publish and obtain funding for successful research.
