The course is designed for students who are currently working in the NHS (or similar clinical service provider) and will suit those who are planning to complete Specialist Registrar training.
The course will help students develop their own careers by equipping them with a high level understanding of the theory and practice of cancer science, of advanced cancer treatment, and the science of cancer research – all to the benefit of cancer patients.
The curriculum will equip students in the field of Clinical Oncology to sit the Part 1 and Part 2 examinations for Fellowship of the Royal College of Radiologists (FRCR). However, the course is not specifically designed as a preparatory or revision course for the FRCR exams. For Medical Oncologists, the course meets the identified need for a theoretical basis to their structured training.
The course adopts a modular, credit accumulation model as follows
- Postgraduate Certificate in Oncology: 60 credits (One academic year – part-time)
- Postgraduate Diploma in Oncology: 120 credits (Two academic years – part-time)
- MSc in Oncology: 180 credits (Four academic years – part-time)
