Clinical Embryology & In Vitro Fertilisation (distance learning) MSc
The University of Dundee10 May 2023
The University of Dundee have introduced a new range of part-time distance learning courses in Clinical Embryology and IVF, with the aim of making it easier for people who already work in associated fields to study for a postgraduate qualification, without having to give up on their current employment. There is an increasing worldwide demand for Assisted Reproductive Technology, including IVF, and so there are growing opportunities for enhancing your career in this field.
Expanding on their considerable experience in delivering full-time on-campus teaching in this subject area, they have designed three part-time courses to give you the maximum flexibility. You can choose to start off with a postgraduate certificate (60 credits over 12 months), or a postgraduate diploma (120 credits over 24 months) or go for the full MSc (180 credits over 36 months). You can also start off with the certificate course, and if that works out well for you, you can continue on to complete the diploma or full MSc.
You will be provided with the wide-ranging education required to become a leader in the field of ART, including training in basic science, embryology, andrology, clinical and controversial issues, and business management. You will also explore research in reproductive medicine, designing and undertaking your own project.
There will be a joint clinical and laboratory focus, due to a dynamic collaboration with a busy clinical ART centre at Ninewells Hospital (one of Europe’s largest University Hospitals). You will have the opportunity to observe various activities within the ART centre, including embryology procedures and following patient journey from initial scans through the entire ART process.
The people teaching on the course have a range of expertise, including scientists, clinicians, embryologists, andrologists, counsellors and business managers. A series of distinguished speakers will also give you access to seminars by world leaders in the field of embryology and ART. You will also develop a unique network of practitioners across the globe, supporting you in your future career.
