What is a course in medicine? This is a program of study that is appropriate for students seeking a medical or medical research degree. It covers various subjects in depth, including anatomy and physiology, medicinal drugs and interactions, and chemistry. Many times, medicine programs require courses in psychology and statistics as well. Courses may include scientific writing and research as well as practicums, internships, or even a thesis.

Introduction

Whether you are thinking of studying Medicine as an undergraduate degree or as a graduate course, this course is designed to set you on the right path to achieving your ambitions, developing skills and knowledge in fundamental areas of medicine.

Overview

Medicine is arguably one of the most challenging professions and one that touches every single one of us at various points throughout our lives. If you’ve ever wondered what exactly the “Hippocratic oath” is, or how the medical profession goes about researching new treatments, this course is for you. Through an interactive learning process with intellectual curiosity and debate at its heart, you’ll gain an understanding of some of the challenges faced by the medical profession, as well as building up a picture of the many different branches of modern medicine.

Academic Content

This course introduces you to and familiarises you with the complex discipline of medicine, both as a profession and an academic pursuit. You’ll start by considering broader topics such as medical ethics – a thought-provoking subject that you’ll explore through debating problem scenarios and case studies with your fellow students. You’ll then look at theoretical areas such as research methods, as well as gaining an appreciation of the skills needed to practice medicine. In addition to understanding the different branches of medicine and what they’re concerned with, you will learn about more specific aspects such as human anatomy, what’s involved in basic medical procedures, and even how to use certain pieces of medical equipment. ...
