About this course

The Infection Sciences programme is for biomedical scientists registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) who wish to undertake flexible, part-time study towards a masters qualification in their specialist area of clinical pathology.

Designed to complement the professional qualifications of the Institute of Biomedical Science (IBMS), the course allows you to expand your knowledge and skills in diagnostic laboratory medicine, learn to apply these skills to clinical diagnosis, laboratory management and research, and to develop as a reflective practitioner, all within the context of the Modernising Scientific Careers (MSC) initiative.

You will take specialist modules in infection sciences, exploring the theoretical, applied and professional aspects of medical microbiology. You will also engage in a large amount of work-related learning and gain support from clinical practitioners.

The course has been developed in consultation with senior managers, laboratory managers and training staff from the NHS biomedical science profession.
