Course content

The MSc Trauma Science programme aims to enable exploration of the theoretical basis of trauma science in general with a route to particular specialisms depending on the cohort need. For example, there are clear paths of specialism for physiotherapists, nurses, doctors, engineers, scientists and military personnel.

The programme is delivered by experts in the field, including those from civilian and military backgrounds at the forefront of trauma care and offers up-to-date knowledge of the science of trauma and its management. The interactive teaching methods equip you with the medical and scientific skills to become a specialist in trauma science and its management.

Using the process of scientific reasoning as its framework, the programme will integrate the key issues central to the theoretical aspects in these specialist areas with communication skills, management approaches, timely and reasoned decision making, identification of treatment options, best practice etc.

You will have the opportunity to tailor your learning experiences and backgrounds to meet your own personal and professional needs. You will also have the opportunity to develop your leadership skills within a multidisciplinary setting that cares for trauma-afflicted patients. Enquiry, evidence-based learning will be a key feature of the programme through problem-based learning and journal clubs. In addition, you will have the opportunity to take part in a substantive research project, allowing you to develop research skills, project management, oral/poster presentation and writing a research dissertation. Research projects may be undertaken in an academic laboratory or can be in a clinical setting.
