Dr Clare Gallon describes the BSc Medical Sciences programme.
We offer four pathways which provide you with the option to study a particular area in more depth:
- Human Genomics
- Pharmacology and Therapeutics
- Health Research
Our Medical Sciences programmes prioritise the science that underpins medicine, preparing you to translate scientific discoveries and technological advances into improved healthcare.
At present, many scientific discoveries never leave the laboratories in which they are made. At the same time, the needs of front-line clinicians – and their patients – often go unheard by those doing research. This career-focused degree trains you to fill these gaps, and thereby enhance the lives of patients.
I came to an Offer-Holder Visit Day for the Medical Sciences programme, where I had a look around the campus, took part in a teaching taster session and thought 'wow, this is the course for me'. I’ve really enjoyed it. I have enjoyed the Professional Training Year the most; it was a chance to go out and work in a research environment.
