The course offers placements in either community or hospital settings in each year of the course so you can gain the experience needed to successfully enter the workplace. You will benefit from inter-professional learning opportunities with Brighton and Sussex Medical School (BSMS), and from teaching informed by our extensive industry links and world-leading research. Our researchers are pioneering new approaches to regenerative medicine, asthma and diabetes care, and leading the development of innovative biomedical products.
