The MSt in Genomic Medicine is part of the suite of part-time, postgraduate courses in Genomic Medicine and designed to further educate suitably qualified NHS healthcare professionals and science graduates with an interest in bio-medical science and the clinical application of genomics.  These courses aim to prepare interested professionals for the future adoption of genomic technologies and the increasing use of genomic information as part of the diagnostic and treatment pathway.

Each postgraduate course is delivered through a combination of face-to-face sessions (requiring attendance in Cambridge), self-directed learning and remote assessment.  Study is fully supported through a virtual learning environment [VLE].  Each module (with the exception of GMO7 - see below) is run as a week-long course, from Monday to Friday, during which in-person attendance will be required each day for the 30+ hours of teaching time (from 9am to 5pm daily*).  

*Timings are approximate as start and finish times may vary. 

Please note that this will be reviewed in line with the latest public health guidance available at any given time. If required, to ensure the health and safety of students, we may look to utilise alternative teaching formats and will contact students if we expect changes to the course delivery.
