International health electives are student-organised placements that offer valuable opportunities for students to learn about health and healthcare in unfamiliar contexts. A collaboration with King’s College London, this MOOC addresses issues of ethics, professionalism, global health and clinical practice, and aims to prepare learners for undertaking an elective and getting the most from the experience.
This course aims to help learners to understand the principles of electrocardiography (ECG) and learn a step-by-step approach to ECG assessment. A collaboration with Kingston University and St George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, the MOOC gives an introductory understanding of ECG assessment and interpretation, which will support the hands-on training that is needed to competently perform the ECG test in clinical practice.
Showing an understanding of a patient's situation is one of the most important skills that a healthcare provider can have. This course will help learners to develop an empathic practice that is individualised and attuned to the needs of all patients. You will learn about different types of empathy, explore non-visual cues, and understand key opportunities for showing empathy in clinical care.
The Genomics in Healthcare programme explores the range of techniques used to interrogate the human genome. Over three online courses you will explore a variety of clinical scenarios which will give you deep insight into the potential of genomics in healthcare, and the clinical applications of molecular genetic techniques and next generation sequencing (NGS) technologies. Join the individual courses or complete the whole programme.
Continue your professional development and get an introduction to the growing role of genomics in healthcare, for patient diagnoses, treatment and disease prevention. Created in collaboration with St George’s University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and the Genomics Education Programme at Health Education England, this course has been certified for 10 CPD credits by the RCPCH, RCGP and RCP.
Postgraduate level MOOCs
The two postgraduate level Genomic Technologies in Clinical Diagnostics courses will provide you with the teaching component of the first module of the PgCert in Interpretation and Clinical Application of Genomic Data delivered at St George’s, University of London.
