Course summary

•A broad and flexible programme, looking at the science behind medicine•Worldwide professional research training placements•Innovative approaches to individual and group learning•A vibrant and supportive environment for personal, academic and professional skills development•State-of-the-art research, teaching and learning resourcesAt present many scientific discoveries never leave the laboratories in which they are made. At the same time the needs of frontline clinicians – and their patients – often go unheard by those doing research. This career-focused degree prepares you to be able to fill these gaps, and thereby enhance the lives of patients.Our Medical Sciences degree offers an innovative approach to learning that includes lectures from world-leading experts; supportive small-group learning; internationally renowned e-learning resources; hands-on sessions in research laboratories and clinical settings; inspirational clinician-scientist-patient sessions; and worldwide professional training placements. The curriculum combines contemporary medical science with the training required to undertake cutting-edge research.Career opportunities and employability training run throughout the programme: after your second year, you will undertake a Professional Training Year (PTY) and spend a year either undertaking research at one of the world’s leading universities, find out what it’s really like to work in industry or work in the NHS research environment. This year will increase your employability and reinforce your CV. The programme has been developed in consultation with industry employers, the NHS and academia and provides a firm foundation in the core biomedical and biomolecular sciences, alongside an insight into medical practice and the biotechnologies used to prevent, test and diagnose disorders and treat patients. You’ll develop an integrated, scientific knowledge that you can put into practice in a clinical setting and robust research skills, plus creative and inquisitive communication, leadership, critical appraisal and problem-solving skills. These key skills will prepare you for a career helping to progress scientific discovery into clinical and medical practice, ultimately to improve human health.
