Reproductive medicine is at the forefront of emerging medico-scientific technology, offering hope to many people trying to have a child. Increasing numbers of medical practitioners are developing special interests in this area – particularly GPs, family planning practitioners and specialist gynaecologists working in menopause and infertility. Similar specialisations are also emerging in nursing and counselling, and among biological scientists. The Master of Reproductive Medicine will give you detailed knowledge of reproductive medicine. You will gain an advanced understanding of the ethical, social and professional aspects required to deliver a high standard of clinical care to patients. You’ll also be able to demonstrate enhanced teamwork skills within the workplace, to specialist and non-specialist audiences, and will develop effective communication skills in professional and social contexts.
