MSc Endovascular Neurosurgery
Course Code | 003660
This course is open to registered medical practitioners with previous experience in the clinical neurosciences. It is intended for doctors who intend to practice minimally invasive neurological therapies and is particularly focused on endovascular treatment technique.
Students are taught vascular neuroanatomy, pathology and endovascular and interventional neuroradiology treatment techniques. Teaching is both theoretical and practical and therefore places on the course are restricted. Candidates will be expected to have background training in Neuroradiology, Neurosurgery or Neurology and previous practical experience of cranial angiography is of benefit
- Length of programme: 12 months
- Core and optional courses: The core knowledge of the course is covered in three terms. Students are required to complete a project of original work which is examined along with the core knowledge. The subject of this thesis is optional but should be agreed in advance with the student’s supervisor
MSc Integrated Immunology
Course Code | 001930
The Master’s course in Integrated Immunology, run jointly by the Nuffield Departments of Surgery and of Medicine, is designed to present immunology within the broader context of the basic sciences and biomedicine.
Both the fundamental (basic) and clinical (applied) aspects of the field are explored, in both depth and breadth, and are integrated with relevant areas of other disciplines, such as molecular cell biology and genetics.
The course provides comprehensive and in-depth training in immunology for science and medical postgraduates. Integration with professional development and transferable skills provides a well rounded approach
- Length of programme: One year (three terms) full-time
- Core and optional courses: The first two terms cover the core taught course in fundamental (basic) and clinical (applied) aspects respectively, while a research project is conducted in the third. There are no ‘options’ available as such
