Intercalated MSc in Medical Science

Programme Overview

As part of a strategy of increasing research opportunities within our undergraduate programmes, the School has established a one year intercalated Masters in Medical Science degree for students of our medicine degree programmes.

This Masters programme is open to Undergraduate Direct Entry to Medicine students with 180 credits from their medical degree or Graduate Entry to Medicine students with a primary degree in a Science-based discipline.  Preference will be given to candidates with previous research experience, which can include participation in the UCD Summer Student Research Scheme or an independent Science/Medicine related research project.

This programme allows undergraduate students to tap into the extensive portfolio of biomedical, clinical and translational research by over 75 principal investigators across the School and within the Conway Institute.

2012 Application Process Now Open

Applications are invited for MSc in Medical Science (Intercalated) positions, two of which are sponsored by the School. This provides UCD medical students, who hope to achieve 180 credits by June 2013, with the opportunity to take a year out of their medical degrees to pursue a lab based research projects.
