Course content

This course offers progression from science related degrees for students wishing to develop an academic interest in clinical sciences. The course develops:

  • Anatomical, physiological and biochemical processes related to cellular, musculo-skeletal and cardiovascular function in terms of both normal and diseased states.
  • Psychological concepts of health, illness and disease.
  • Clinical research process from proposal stage to undertaking, including presenting in oral and written form suitable for medical and academic audiences.

This course provides a combination of cutting edge theory and research skills to students who have a strong scientific background but not necessarily any directly relevant subject knowledge which makes this course challenging and rewarding.

Successful students will combine consistently high levels of lecture attendance with a similarly significant amount of self-directed study and will be supported by academics and clinicians who are well respected in their specialist fields.
