This degree aims to provide a science programme related to medicine with strong professional research elements. These aspects are closely linked to the three generic graduate outcomes specified in Tomorrow’s Doctors; that is, a Doctor as a scholar and scientist, practitioner, and professional. This programme acts as a potential stepping stone into Medical Schools as a graduate entrant and also equips graduates with the skills to pursue other clinically related careers. This makes it an ideal 5th choice for those whose primary aim is Medicine or Dentistry, as well as a 1st choice for those interested in a Health based career but who want to keep their options open. The programme is a Feeder Stream for the Medicine Four Year Graduate Entry Scheme (MBBCh) at Cardiff University. Students will benefit from teaching and research expertise across a number of disciplines.
