The Blizard Institute is home to a lively postgraduate community, and its Postgraduate Taught (PGT) programmes are led by experts and informed by the latest research. We offer courses both in-house and through Distance Learning, with The Blizard Institute having the largest proportion of distance learning courses found within Queen Mary University of London. We have a wide range of PGT courses run by several of our Centres within the Blizard, which focus on knowledge, theory, research methodology and practical application.

The Centre for Trauma Sciences is a world-leading Centre of excellence for translational research at Barts and the London School of Medicine & Dentistry (SMD), Queen Mary University of London. 

The centre focuses on the immediate post-injury phase, with research into the pathophysiology of injury and a pathway to ensure the translation of research into practice and into policy.

World class research is coupled with international education and dissemination programmes to improve care and outcomes of trauma patients worldwide. Our primary clinical partner is the Royal London Hospital Major Trauma Centre.

Course Descriptions

MSc Trauma Sciences

Trauma is one of the world’s leading killers and is responsible for the loss of more life-years than any other disease. All countries, developed and developing recognise the importance of trauma to their health care systems.

Many countries including the UK are actively pursuing rationalisation and specialisation programmes. This two year distance-learning course will provide you with a broad and critical understanding of the most up-to-date science and practice of trauma care.

An optional summer school incorporating simulated scenario training (consistent with your scope of practice) will complement the didactic learning to provide practical knowledge and experience of decision-making and the safe, professional delivery of core clinical functions in the management of seriously injured patients.

Year One consists of eight 15 credit modules and Year Two is a 60 credit dissertation module. Lectures are accessed online each week as is convenient and there are weekly online tutorial sessions with internationally renowned faculty. Assessments are a combination of written assignment and MCQ quiz in Year One.

MSc Orthopaedic Trauma Science

Trauma is one of the world's leading killers and is responsible for a significant proportion of the global burden of disease. Improving survival and outcomes following traumatic injury has been identified as a key priority by the World Health Organisation and orthopaedic injuries pose a major clinical challenge world-wide.

This two year online distance-learning course uses novel teaching and assessment techniques. It will provide a broad and critical understanding of the most up-to-date science and practice of trauma care, with a particular focus on orthopaedic and orthoplastic management.

It combines an international expert faculty with technology-enhanced learning so that students can readily access knowledge from around the world at a time and place of their choosing.

Interactive discussion forums and one to one tutor sessions help to engender an inclusive and supportive community, as well as facilitating a worldwide network of contacts with shared interests.

This is further developed by an optional 2-week residential summer school at the end of the first year in London. This incorporates simulated scenario training to complement the didactic learning and to provide practical knowledge and experience of decision-making and the safe, professional delivery of core clinical functions in the management of seriously injured patients. The second year of study entails a written dissertation on a specific area of knowledge or original research.

MSc Trauma Sciences (Military and Humanitarian)

Trauma is one of the world’s leading killers and is responsible for the loss of more life-years than any other disease. War is predicted to be the sixth leading cause of death by 2020. Opportunities for the training of military trauma care specialists are extremely limited, and many defence agencies rely on the deployment situation as the primary training for their personnel.

All countries, developed and developing, recognise the importance of trauma to their healthcare systems. With global disasters, humanitarian crises and mass casualty events on the rise, the importance of specialist training in the science and management of these events is increasingly important.

This two-year distance learning course will provide students with a broad and critical understanding of the most up-to-date science and practice of trauma care in these environments.

A summer school incorporating simulated scenario training (consistent with your scope of practice) will complement the didactic learning to provide practical knowledge and experience of decision-making, along with the safe, professional delivery of core clinical functions in the management of seriously injured patients.
