MSc Applied Toxicology Programme 2016-17

Description

Programme Objectives

  • To provide a multi-disciplinary training in Applied Toxicology by bringing together expert lecturers, tutors and advisers from the University of Surrey, from elsewhere in the UK, and from overseas.
  • To enable participants to acquire a critical understanding of the issues in modern toxicology with a view to developing practical problem-solving skills.
  • To ensure that the standard of examining is maintained to a high level using appropriate quality control procedures that are consistent with the requirements of the University of Surrey regulations. Standards are carefully monitored by the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences and by external examiners appointed by the University.
  • To facilitate the accumulation of credits obtained in individual modules towards an MSc or Postgraduate Diploma in Applied Toxicology.
  • To provide a training programme that is sufficiently comprehensive and of an appropriate standard for those wishing to pursue professional examinations in toxicology such as those offered by the Royal College of Pathologists and the American Board of Toxicology.
  • To provide a learning environment in which participants have access to state-of-the-art knowledge in the form of books, papers, lecturers and expert advice in specific areas of toxicology

Who is the programme for?

The participants in the Modular Training Programme are normally science, medical or veterinary graduates (or equivalent) either currently working in a toxicology environment or seeking to use a knowledge of toxicology in some area of their careers.  

The Modular Training Programme is ideal for research managers, regulatory affairs specialists, occupational and environmental health scientists and physicians, research scientists and anyone who needs to keep abreast of the developments in modern toxicology without having to enrol on a full-time training programme.

Although formal qualifications are normally required for registration as an MSc candidate, no such requirements apply to participation in a training module.

MSc Nutritional Medicine

MSc Nutritional Medicine

Description

Nutritional medicine includes clinical nutrition but is wider in scope, covering aspects of nutrition and health via the part that nutrition plays in health, disease, lifecycle and ageing.

The two compulsory modules Principles of Nutritional Science and Principles of Applied Nutrition and Epidemiology have been planned to give an excellent foundation in nutritional science and applied nutrition that will benefit participants in their understanding of the other modules.

The remaining ten modules range broadly over the interface between nutrition and health, covering diseases widely recognised to have a nutritional component and those, such as mental illness, where such a link is less well-known.

Some modules address stages of life such as pregnancy and old age while others concentrate on classes of nutrients important to health. The gut, being the means whereby we receive our nutrients, has a module to itself. Nutrition in the hospital setting is covered in Clinical Nutrition and Nutritional Support. A research module is required for the MSc.
