About This Course
This course has been specifically designed in collaboration with local NHS clinical laboratories and has been accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science. Scientific and clinical staff from hospitals in North Wales will be heavily involved in all aspects of teaching and guest presentations will be given by international diagnostic companies.
Biomedical Science is concerned with the integration of a wide range of subjects that underpin the scientific investigation of human health and disease. This course is designed to give students essential knowledge and understanding of the biology of disease, including modern concepts and applications of biomedical science in the research, diagnosis and treatment of clinical disorders. Students are encouraged to assimilate knowledge from core biological sciences to develop skills in the more specialised biomedical disciplines of clinical biochemistry, cellular pathology, haematology and medical microbiology. There is a need for graduates who are experienced in the advanced diagnostic and molecular techniques that are revolutionising disease diagnosis and treatment in the NHS, Armed Forces, Industry, Academia and Research.
