Course content

Choose your specialism with this course in endocrinology and diabetes for clinicians and scientists. It's a good platform for a career in research or in the clinical or broader field of endocrinology and diabetes.

Course description

Our MSc has been designed to cover a breadth of hormonal processes, including hormones synthesis and their regulatory roles. These insights will form the basis to understanding the pathophysiology and management of endocrine conditions and diabetes over the life course.

You’ll be taught by leading clinicians and scientists who'll provide you with a good platform for a research career or a career in the clinical or broader field of endocrinology and diabetes.

Endocrinology and diabetes is a wide-ranging scientific discipline concerned with the hormonal regulation of all key bodily processes and the maintenance of homeostasis. Clinical disease processes can occur from fetal life throughout life to old age. Understanding the science behind these hormonal processes is key to diagnosing and developing effective treatments in humans and other animals.

Through the taught modules you'll develop a solid understanding of the science that underpins endocrinology and diabetes and how it relates to clinical disease entities. You’ll cover the breadth of processes and clinical problems relevant to all areas of endocrinology and diabetes.

You'll also have the opportunity to learn about novel innovations and technological advances in the field and undertake a research project to develop a depth of knowledge in a specialist topic.

The course is structured to provide general as well as subject-specific scientific training and to provide academic and clinical perspectives in the management and treatment of endocrine disorders and diabetes.
