Course content

MSc in Neonatal Medicine aims to provide excellent training and education in the identification, critical appraisal and implementation of effective treatments based on a sound knowledge of basic science, pathophysiology and relevant evidence. Key experts from the field of Neonatal Medicine are involved in the delivery of the course.

The programme will be delivered entirely by distance learning (E-learning) on a part-time basis therefore allowing a flexibility of study to suit your own needs.

As an online distance-learning programme, teaching will be delivered via Learning Central, Cardiff University’s virtual learning environment. This will incorporate interactive learning materials and discussion forums to which students will contribute and learning will be further encouraged through group exercises.

Formative assessments including multiple choice questions (MCQs) or other relevant tests will be incorporated into modules. Summative assessment will be provided through assessments, exercises and written assignments designed to enable students to demonstrate the learning outcomes.
