MSc in Obstetrics & Gynaecology at UCC

The Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at Cork University Maternity Hospital, together with University College Cork seek candidates for the Masters of Science (MSc) in Obstetrics and Gynaecology programme commencing every September.

The MSc in Obstetrics and Gynaecology is a two-year cyclical part-time programme, comprising taught modules, clinical attachments and a dissertation. Modules consist of formal teaching material, lectures and course work, individual assignments including case studies, debates and journal reviews, clinical skills teaching and practical exercises. The taught component is delivered during a weekly half-day session, and students working off-site can access this using a video-conferencing facility. The MSc programme incorporates the MRCPI curriculum and provides structured research opportunities, thus fulfilling a number of the requirements to aid career progression into higher specialist training.

The aim of the programme is to provide postgraduate education in Obstetrics and Gynaecology for clinical students in current employment, to enhance their academic understanding of the specialty and to provide thorough clinical training.  If you have a primary medical degree, having an MSc can set you apart from other candidates when applying for Higher Specialist Training and further postgraduate courses.
