Biomedical and Healthcare Science is the study of human disorders and disease processes. It includes areas such as physiology, biochemistry, haematology, transfusion science, cellular pathology, molecular biology, bioinformatics, infection and immunity. The study of Healthcare Sciences includes the specialisms of Blood Science, Cellular science, Genetic science and Infection science.

Both programmes involve the development of knowledge and understanding of disease processes and of the application of laboratory methods in research, diagnosis, screening and patient management.

Whilst many biomedical scientists work within the health care sector there are excellent opportunities to work in other areas such as medical research, biopharmaceuticals, forensics, teaching and epidemiological and data analysis. As a result of the relevant scientific background which our courses cover; students increasingly use their degree award as an acceptable method of entry to graduate medicine courses or undertake the MSc Biomedical Science at the School.
