Course content

Southampton’s full-time or part-time MSc Genomic Medicine programme explores the genomics and informatics of rare and common diseases, cancer and infectious diseases, and the application of these for diagnostics, prognostics and stratified medicine. Our programme is suitable for science graduates seeking to apply genomics to their future careers, and for health professionals from medicine, nursing, public health and clinical sciences.

Our flexible postgraduate course offers you the option of tailoring your learning to suit your needs and career aspirations. You can choose from studying single modules, a PG Certificate, a PG Diploma or the full MSc, and we have full-time and part-time study options. It will equip you with the skills to improve diagnosis and personalised treatment, as well as how to disseminate this knowledge to your peers, patients and the public.
