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.

MSc in Clinical Embryology

This 1 year, residential, taught MSc aims to provide graduate students, scientists and clinicians with highly advanced theoretical and practical understanding of human reproductive biology, embryology, infertility and assisted reproductive technology (ART) along with intensive ‘hands-on’ practical training in essential laboratory skills and the sophisticated gamete micromanipulation techniques associated with ART.

Research Degrees

The Nuffield Department of Obstetrics & Gynaecology offers two postgraduate research programmes: a two-year MSc by Research and a three-year DPhil. These involve undertaking independent research in your chosen area under the supervision of an expert in your field.

Examples of topics include genetic studies; the dissection of molecular, biochemical and cellular mechanisms underlying normal and aberrant reproductive tissue function; gynaecological cancer; clinical studies in women’s health and pregnancy; epidemiological research into women’s health; and growth and development across the first 1000 days of life.

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.
