Course content

Our part-time blended learning MSc Occupational Medicine course provides an overview of the whole spectrum of medicine and hygiene within the workplace.

The course is aimed at GPs who want to gain an academic qualification in occupational medicine and doctors already working in the field - especially in specialist training posts - who want to prepare for professional exams with the Faculty of Occupational Medicine (FOM).

This MSc is also suitable for doctors in other disciplines who have an interest in occupational medicine.

You will benefit from access to a range of specialist knowledge and resources within occupational health and examine the evidence on which occupational health practice is based.

The course takes place in a research-enriched environment and, for those progressing to the third year of the MSc, you will have the opportunity to undertake research-based activities relevant to occupational health, including formulating a research question, designing and executing an appropriate study and drawing valid conclusions through writing a dissertation.

Our course follows the syllabus requirements of the FOM (London and Ireland).
