Description

Advertisement

This programme will develop your knowledge and understanding of the mechanisms and management of allergic disease, encompassing immunological basis, diagnostic testing, pharmaceutical preparations, management programmes and research techniques. The modular structure is suited to two to three years part-time study, and offers a PG Cert (60 credits), PG Dip (120 credits) or full MSc (180 credits).

The course is suitable for: general practitioners, who would be able to set up an allergy clinic within their practice, and practice nurses, who would be able to work within such a clinic; specialist nurses, who would be able to run clinics in primary care or hospitals; specialist registrars and scientists, as preparation for research in allergy; other health professionals, such as dietitians, who are required to manage patients with allergies; and scientists who hope to gain more understanding of both the clinical aspects and basic mechanisms of allergic diseases as a whole, to aid their research programmes.

Careers: The course will enable you to enhance your knowledge of allergy, enabling you to develop in your role as a health professional (doctor, nurse, dietitian, pharmacist, scientist)

Contents

Our core module, Foundation of allergic disease, gives a comprehensive overview of the mechanisms and management of allergic diseases. In addition we offer a range of optional modules for students to tailor the course to their needs: Food allergy; Eczema, urticaria and anaphylaxis; and Allergic airways disease. There are practical sessions both taught in the modules and available as optional extras. In addition, there is a workbased learning module that allows students to design their own learning experience in allergy to benefit their needs. Training in research skills and statistics prepares students for a dissertation (MSc only) via traditional research or a professional project.

Assessment: All designed to be completed at a distance or as in-course assessment. Assessments include written and oral communication of case histories and assignments

Second-class honours degree, or ability to study at HE7 in the form of (i) a relevant professional qualification at a suitable level, (ii) relevant post-qualifying professional experience, or (iii) intercalation on a UK undergraduate medical degree and successful completion of at least three years of the programme (English language: IELTS 7.0 or equivalent for speakers of other languages)
