Health and Medical Sciences (BSc) is an innovative course offered by Warwick Medical School. It helps you to explore the world's local and global problems in health from multiple perspectives. A trailblazer in the world of undergraduate science, BSc Health and Medical Sciences, will enable you to investigate current local and global problems in health from multiple perspectives. Wherever we look in the world, health and medical services are struggling to cope with rising demand and an increasing burden of disease. Advances in the scientific understanding of disease, along with technological innovations, offer exciting opportunities for improved health, but also challenge our health systems in terms of developing affordable and accessible treatment and health management strategies. Factors ranging from our genes to our lifestyle and interactions within society will influence our physical and mental health. Multidisciplinary solutions to health problems must be complex and comprehensive. These problems require individuals who have the skills to work across traditional boundaries as agents for change. The BSc in Health and Medical Sciences uniquely integrates the established fields of health science and medical science. Medical sciences, including molecular biology, genetics and epigenetics, physiology, anatomy, immunology, pharmacology, discovery science and clinical trials, promote an in-depth understanding of human biology and health and disease from the level of DNA, cells, and systems in the human body up to the level of patient as a whole. Health Sciences, including health care systems, patient safety, ethics, human behaviour, psychology of health, sociology, epidemiology and health economics promote an in-depth understanding of health problems from the level of individuals, families, the workplace, up to the level of societies and populations. Therefore, this course will equip you with the essential skills to be able to make a valuable and uniquely informed contribution to health in our society. Case-based learning, a signature small-group educational approach for Warwick Medical School is a feature of the course, as is technology enhanced learning. These progressive learning methods ensure our graduates are highly competent and employable across a broad range of careers in the health and medical sciences.
