University of Edinburgh - Master of Science in Family Medicine
This pioneering, on-line, distance learning programme is targeted at doctors working in low/middle income countries with limited opportunity for post-graduate study in family medicine. Students working in rural areas are particularly encouraged through the provision of bursaries.
The programme is delivered in partnership with the Christian Medical College in Vellore, India and the International Christian Medical and Dental Association. The programme’s team of tutors are practicing family doctors working in a variety of settings across the world.
Students are taught the principles of family medicine and evidence-based medicine focusing on application to local context as well as relevance to global health and the goal of universal health coverage. On-line learning is complemented by 2 weeks face-to-face teaching, allowing students to meet and form peer-support learning networks which continue beyond completion of the course.
