What you'll learn on the course
Biological Sciences exploring how knowledge of biological systems at the molecular, cellular and organismal levels underpin clinical medicine.
History of healthcare provides a critical view of the interaction of intellectual and social factors in the making of medical theory, practice, and professionalization, and the overall role of health care and medicine in the creation of modern society.
Philosophy of healthcare exploring ethical and conceptual issues that shape the nature and goals of medicine, interrogating problems of life and death.
The degree will cover how we experience health and illness, and why that might also be central to modern conceptions of medicine and healthcare.As well as studying anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology students will address questions such as:
how did doctors get the power to tell us how to eat, drink, and think?
how did we get a National Health Service, and how does it work?
what is the role of health care in controversial areas like euthanasia and suicide prevention?
This course is ideal for those who are interested in the natural sciences and how they apply to the human body.
