Course content

This professional doctorate programme is an extension of our impressive Biomedical Science portfolio, which includes the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS) - accredited BSc (Hons) and MSc programmes.

Deepen your knowledge in a globally recognised department

The Professional Doctorate in Biomedical Science comprises four compulsory modules with integrated doctoral level research, aimed at full-time practitioners wishing to expand and extend their skills and knowledge to support existing roles, or to meet the demands of new ones. For example, this qualification is ideal for those taking on or seeking managerial or consultancy roles. It is open to employees working in the NHS or equivalent healthcare industry, or practicing in laboratories in the UK and internationally. Modules cover good clinical practice, research management, and highlight the concept and value of reflective practitioners. We also introduce you to training on a personal, professional and academic level through workshops, coursework and personal portfolios.

You'll have access to the Graduate School's designated work areas and networked library access, and attend seminars from leading researchers in biomedicine and related disciplines.
