Course programme

Year 1 The first year is an introduction to important aspects of Biomedical Sciences and includes lectures, laboratory practicals and tutorial sessions in key foundation subjects. Since year 1 is common for all undergraduate degrees in the School of Medical Sciences, you will have an opportunity to change to Medical Sciences (B100) or Medical Biology (B103) before the start of year 2 Compulsory modules: Foundation in Molecules and Cells Key Skills in Medical Science Foundation in Clinical Skills Good Laboratory Practice Biomedical Practicals Physiology and Anatomy Introduction to Microbiology Foundation in Therapeutics Year 2 Compulsory modules: Molecular Biology & Biochemistry Cell Biology Vocational Skills Haematology & Transfusion Basic Clinical Biochemistry Human Immunology Medical Microbiology Histology & Histochemistry Cancer Genetics Year 3 Compulsory modules: Medical Genetics Drug Development Microbiology & Human Disease Haematology and Transfusion Clinical Biochemistry Diagnostic Cellular Pathology Pathophysiology Integrated Research Project There may be an opportunity for those interested in forging careers in NHS Pathology laboratories to apply for voluntary work experience during the course. During this period it may be possible to follow a training programme designed to meet the requirements for eligibility to apply for registration as a Biomedical Scientist with the Health and Care Professions Council on completion of the degree.
