Genetics has had an enormous impact throughout healthcare. With the development of newer sophisticated technologies, this impact is rapidly increasing. Many research scientists, clinical laboratory scientists and clinicians are now needed to investigate the causes (and improve the management) of the very large (and increasing) number of diseases known to have significant genetic or genomic causes.
The aim of this programme is to provide you with a working knowledge of the principles and practice of Medical Genetics and Genomics allowing you to evaluate, choose and interpret appropriate genetic investigations for individuals and families with genetic disease.
You should have a degree with Honours or equivalent in a relevant biological science. Applicants with a degree in medicine / dentistry or equivalent and a clear interest in genetics will also be considered.
You are required to provide two references and a full degree transcript with your application.
