General

Program Description

Programme Objectives

In addition to developing subject-based expertise and skills, consideration of practices adopted in this field globally will ensure the programme is relevant to an international community of students. The programme is intended to:

  • Provide students with a sound knowledge and understanding in the fundamental subjects that underpin Biomedical Science, including human physiology and anatomy, biochemistry, cell biology, molecular genetics, immunology, microbiology and the biology of disease.
  • To develop intellectual skills in relation to knowledge and understanding of current methods available for laboratory investigation, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disease. In addition to the roles of specialist disciplines, including medical microbiology, clinical biochemistry, cellular pathology, haematology and transfusion science and clinical immunology.
  • To develop practical skills in the laboratory in addition to broader professional skills.
  • To prepare students for employment or future study by developing transferable skills, including self-management and reflective practice, communication, IT, numeracy, data analysis and interpersonal and teamwork skills.
  • To develop an appreciation of the role of scientific research in the advancement of Biomedical Science.
