We run three world class Postgraduate study programmes: MSc in Clinical Embryology (1 year residential programme) MSc by Research (2 years research degree) and DPhil (3-4 years research degree). We also teach the fundamentals of Obstetrics & Gynaecology to clinical undergraduate students as part of their medical degree.

Undergraduate Teaching

Obstetrics & Gynaecology is a core subject in the fifth year of the Medical School curriculum. Therefore, the provision of high quality and innovative teaching for clinical medical students is a departmental priority. Six groups a year of 24-28 students attend a two‐week taught course, followed by five weeks of clinical work in one of seven hospitals, and finish with a week of revision and assessment.
