Applied Biomedical Science

Applied Biomedical Science represents an integrated approach to the study of human health and disease, with an emphasis on the diagnosis and understanding of disease processes from a medical diagnostic perspective. This course is only open to you if you are employed in a suitable accredited biomedical laboratory able to support work-based learning; you will need a written statement of support from your employer. The course builds on the practical knowledge developed within the workplace, and provides underpinning knowledge essential to the development of practising biomedical scientists. Initially you will study the important fundamental sciences, including biochemistry, cell biology, and human anatomy and physiology. You will develop your understanding of disease processes and the biology of the associated molecular changes, combined with the principles of laboratory procedures used to aid diagnosis. As the course progresses you will focus increasingly on the complex nature of disease as it affects particular biological systems, and the study of disease processes. You will undertake a major project at Credit Level 6, enabling you to develop the skills required for genuine scientific inquiry. Teaching includes lectures and seminars, practical laboratory work, group activities and tutorials, and supervised use of facilities. Assessment is through a combination of exams and coursework (including essays, practical work, group work, presentations and reports).
