Successful HEE funding secures Genomics Masters programme

08 Feb 2018

The Universities of Manchester and Liverpool have successfully collaborated on a bid to deliver Health Education England's (HEE) Masters programme in Genomic Medicine.

The programme is designed for learners who wish to develop specialist knowledge in Genomics. NHS staff can study free thanks to the HEE funding, and it is intended that their new knowledge will be applied in their clinical practice. Applications from science graduates are also encouraged. MSc, PgDip, PgCert and CPD options are available on a part time or full time basis.

Associate Dean for Postgraduate Teaching, Professor Phil Padfield, and Dr Forbes Manson from the School of Biological Sciences coordinated The University of Manchester's tender with input from the Greater Manchester NHS Genomic Medical Centre (GMC).

Phil said: "The collaboration provides a unique opportunity to deliver excellence through our new North West hub allowing us to play a significant part in leading the Genomic Medicine revolution in Healthcare."
