Exploring the workings of the human body in health and disease medical science focuses on human physiology and anatomy, clinical diagnostics, infectious disease and therapeutics, from molecular defects to gross anatomical changes. Grounded in modern medical practice this degree gives you skills to enter a range of clinical career pathways including Physician Associate, Physiotherapy and Paramedic science. There is also the potential for graduate entry into Medicine, including Cardiff’s MBBCh C21 north Wales degree delivered in Bangor. Our Medical Sciences degree aims to provide a science programme, related to medicine, with strong professional research elements. You’ll receive a firm foundation of scientific teaching, considering human health and disease at a micro and macro level. This enables you to develop, integrate and apply your knowledge at the interface of scientific discovery and clinical practice. As a graduate, you’ll be equipped with a broad skill set, making the course an ideal first choice for those interested in a health-based career but who want to keep their options open. It is also a perfect fifth choice for those whose primary aim is Medicine or Dentistry; for high-achieving students this degree may act as a stepping stone into Medical Schools as a graduate entrant. ‘Placement Year’ and 'International Experience Year’ options are available for this course. You will have the opportunity to fully consider these options when you have started your course at Bangor and can make an application for a transfer onto such a pathway at the appropriate time. You can find more information about these options on our website and if you have any questions, please get in touch. If you don’t have the required qualifications for this degree-level course or are looking to re-enter education after time away from study, then a Foundation Year Programme might be the right choice for you. Please see Medical Science (with Foundation Year) B110.
