MSc Women’s Health (Full Version)


Here at the Women’s Institute for Health we believe that the health and wellbeing of women can be improved at all points during their life. From birth through puberty, motherhood, menopause and onto old age. To reflect this
we’re offering a new and unique Msc course in Women’s health. This will cover all aspects
of women’s lives; the social, cultural, physical, mental, legal and ethical issues
that affect women around the globe. The program exists of four core modules; understanding
research in women’s health, concepts and controversies legal and ethical aspects of
women’s health and female reproductive anatomy and physiology. These give you a broad platform
on the basic subjects. You can then choose four other optional modules from an extensive
list of courses across UCL. This allows you to tailor your degree to your particular interests
and to your career aspirations. These topics include things like mental health, sexual
health, reproductive health, pregnancy and childbirth, health economics and health psychology. These modules are all set in different ways including essay, exam, portfolio and presentations. As well as the taught elements of the course you will complete a three month independent
research project in a library, audit, clinical or laboratory-based subject around women’s
health. You’ll be involved in all aspects of the project, from the design, literature
review, data collection and analysis and interpretation and you will write up your results in a ten thousand
word dissertation. Throughout our program there is a strong focus
on developing key skills and career advice. As well as networking with the clinicians
and scientists that work here at the institute. Students from the other Msc courses at the
institute have gone onto a wide variety of careers in topics like reproductive health,
prenatal diagnosis and fetal medicine.
