Description

This programme aims to develop your interest, knowledge and understanding of the theory, practical techniques and research relating to the science of transplantation and transfusion medicine. For example: How is blood processed? When do we give platelet transfusions? How is tissue engineering being used to replace heart valves? What causes haemolytic anaemia? How do we reduce the transfusion-related risk of HIV and vCJD?

Contents

The MSc programme consists of five units. A, B and D are taught through informal lectures, interactive tutorials and assignments. Transfusion and Transplantation in Practice (C) is a course of practical work and hands-on demonstrations in research and service labs in Bristol. The research project (E) allows you to plan, execute, analyse and write up an original investigation as a thesis under guidance from a supervisor.

For the award of MSc, a pass in all units is mandatory. For the award of Diploma, a pass in units A, B, C and D is mandatory. For the award of Certificate, you must pass units A, C1 and D1.
