This course aims to develop your understanding of biological principles relating to the function of the human body and the characteristics and diagnosis of disease leading to possible therapeutic interventions. You will gain a solid grounding in the principles of biomedical science prior to studying more specialist and advanced topics. Your studies will benefit from new laboratory facilities with specialist equipment and our links with local hospitals with whom we work closely. This course is particularly relevant to biomedical science practice and an ideal qualification if you are seeking a career in this area. This course is accredited by the Royal Society of Biology for the purpose of meeting in part the academic and experience requirement for the Membership and Chartered Biologist (CBiol). This course is accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science. Features and benefits of the course: - This course is professionally accredited by the Institute of Biomedical Science and the Royal Society of Biology. - We have new high spec teaching and research laboratories with specialist equipment including a point-of-care testing and clinical skills lab, blood biochemistry, biomechanics, motor control and exercise performance labs and a purpose-built facility for the advanced practical study of physiology. - Our £3m building for Biomedicine houses one of the few magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanners to be found outside a hospital setting. - The School of Healthcare Science has over 30 years' experience in delivering high quality healthcare science programmes and in providing excellent teaching and student support as recognised by the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education.
