Masters in Wound Healing and Tissue Repair (MSc)

The inception of the Masters in Wound Healing and Tissue Repair was, and remains unique, as there are few others of its kind. Originally introduced in 1996 as a Postgraduate Diploma in Wound Healing and Tissue Repair, the course has met the needs of a professional group of individuals working in a speciality which previously had no specific professional award particularly at this level of study. In 1999 the course was extended to offer a Masters level award. The structure of the MSc is: Part 1 Years 1 and 2 (Taught):

Year 1
Module 1       Biology of Wound Healing
Module 2       Psychosocial aspects of Wound Healing
Module 3       Research Design and Methods
Module 4       Factors affecting healing
Module 5       Assessment of wounds

Year 2
Module 6       Management of Acute Wounds
Module 7       Management of Chronic Wounds
Module 8       Values and Priorities in Wound Care
Part 2 Year 3 (Dissertation)
Dissertation – 20,000 words.
