Description

Advertisement

The School of Medicine conducts a very active and successful academic programme. Most of the teaching takes place on the Hartshill campus, which is ideally located adjacent to the University Hospital of North Staffordshire, providing access to workshops, offices and seminar rooms and the all-important direct connection with the full range of clinical activities. Our students and staff members therefore have the opportunity to work directly with nursing and clinical staff. The Guy Hilton Research Centre offers a patient treatment facility alongside state-of-the art equipment for translational research, which includes cell therapy suites, genomic facilities and advanced laser and diagnostic laboratories.

The School embraces specialists working in the University Hospital of North Staffordshire and RJAH Orthopaedic Hospital Oswestry,
covering the key medical and surgical subspecialties. A number of successful interdisciplinary research programmes are being carried out, and the postgraduate culture is very evident and ideally suited to the development and delivery of postgraduate courses.

Grant income is from the Research Councils, the Department of Health and major charities, as well as non-UK based organisations,
including the EU and the NIH (USA). Excellent library and study facilities are available at the Clinical Education Centre and at the University Library on the main campus.

The aims of the courses are to provide multidisciplinary Masters Level postgraduate training in biomedical engineering and cellular engineering. These will involve building on existing undergraduate knowledge in basic sciences and applying it to clinical applications of bioengineering and cell/tissue engineering relevant to the health care environment.

The overall objectives are:

  • To provide courses at a postgraduate level leading to professional careers in biomedical engineering and cell/tissue engineering in a wide range of health care establishments such as medical organisations, medical research institutions and NHS Trust hospitals
  • To provide an opportunity for in-depth research into specialist and novel areas of biomedical engineering and cell/tissue engineering
  • To expose students to practical work in a hospital environment with hands-on knowledge of patient care
  • To introduce students to exciting new fields within medical and cell/tissue engineering such as molecular techniques in tissue engineering and novel technologies for physiological monitoring
