Presentación

Medical Science focuses on the cutting edge science that underpins modern medicine, fostering new discoveries and technologies which improve healthcare. You will study a comprehensive range of topics within medical science, and gain an in-depth understanding of how our bodies work, how disease is treated and how new technology is evolving in this exciting field.

You can choose to study Medical Sciences through selecting one of four possible pathways. Each pathway provides a strong foundation in medical science, but the flexibility of choosing your own distinct pathway allows you to shape the degree to best suit your future aspirations. The pathways include specialisms in Psychology, Engineering or Computing, Visualisation & AI. Alternatively, you can choose a more generic Medical Science focus.

Objetivos

On this course you will be taught by a range of staff with relevant expertise and knowledge appropriate to the content of the unit. This will include senior academic staff, qualified professional practitioners, demonstrators, technicians and research students. You will also benefit from regular guest lectures from industry.

Programa

Year 1
Medical Science Skills: The core skills needed for a career in medical science include the ability to evaluate reports, analyse data and be familiar with the ethical issues pertaining to medical science research to be able to present your research findings in a professional manner.
Human Anatomy & Physiology: Giving you an overview of the structure and function of the human body, you will be introduced to the concepts underlying pathophysiological processes that disturb health. Key biological and physiological practical techniques relevant to measuring human health and disease are covered, together with the skills you will need for the analysis and presentation of the resulting data.

Cell Biology: Cells are the basic unit of life and hence knowledge of cell biology is fundamental to understanding wider concepts in biology. This unit introduces key themes in cell biology to provide a sound underpinning knowledge of cells and the way they function. It will equip you with an understanding of cell structure, function, control, basic molecular biology, the interaction of cells with viruses and the basic experimental techniques used to investigate cells.

Pathway core units:
Chemistry (Pathway 1, 2, 3 core): You will be provided with an understanding of some aspects and processes within fundamental chemistry and analytical chemistry and develop your laboratory skills. The unit will predominately be delivered through lectures and practical laboratory sessions. The laboratory sessions will enable reinforcement of the theoretical concepts by dealing with experimentally generated data and will allow for one-to-one and small group discussions.

Introduction to Immunology (Pathway 1 core)
Biological & Cognitive Psychology (Pathway 1, 2 & 4 core).
Fundamentals of Data Analysis (Pathway 2, 3 & 4 core)
Biomedical Engineering Principles (Pathway 3 & 4 core)

Year 2
Pathways 1 (General), 2 (Psychology) and 3 (Engineering) all have 6 pathway core units. Pathway 4 (Computing and Visualisation) has 5 pathway cores and a choice of one from the two option units listed below.

Programme core units:
Advanced Skills in Medical Science: To succeed in your field you must be able to conduct successful independent research. During this unit, you will develop a hypothesis, plan successful research and write a compelling, well-justified research proposal. These transferable skills will include the ability to test hypotheses, analyse and interpret data.

Advanced Cell Biology: This unit will examine the operation of cells and the control, development and modification of cells to fulfil highly specialised roles in multicellular organisms. The unit aims to equip students with a detailed understanding of cell structure and function, control and regulation of cellular processes and the development of multicellular organisms.

Pathway core units and option units for pathway 4:
Introduction to Pharmacology (Pathway 1 & 2 core)
Biochemistry (Pathway 1 & 2 core)
Introduction to Toxicology (Pathway 1 & 2 core)
Osteomechanics (Pathway 1 & 3 core / Option for pathway 4)
Biological Psychology (Pathway 2 core / Option for pathway 4)
Biomedical Engineering Applications (Pathway 3 & 4 core)
Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence (Pathway 2, 3 & 4 core)
Mixed Realities (Pathway 3 & 4 core)
