If you’re interested in working in health-related industries, a key skill will be your ability to work as part of a multidisciplinary team. Each member is a specialist providing patient centred care. This healthcare stream includes: Paramedic Science, Midwifery, Nursing, Physiotherapy, and Occupational Therapy will bring together several departments and their academics for you to really understand how these multidisciplinary teams work in practice.
You are invited to explore your chosen profession and gain insight into the specific role and professional skills required to provide patient centred rehabilitation in an acute and chronic environment. Using patient cases and a simulated clinical environment you will have the opportunity to apply analytical and problem solving skills and understand the significance of reflection and excellent communication in patient management.
Sports, Exercise, and Nutrition
This stream will cover the relationship between physical activity, nutrition and health. You will engage with workshops that will address socio-cultural, psychological, and physiological factors. The workshop knowledge will then be applied in practical- and lab-based sessions in state of the art facilities. Academics will also provide you with extension research activities for you to complete as part of the programme.
This Sports, Exercise and Nutrition stream will bring together two departments and their academics for you to really understand how these multidisciplinary teams work in practice and research.
Biology and Biomedical Science
On this stream, you will gain insight into what it’s like to study a Biology related subject at university. You’ll meet and work with staff from the Department of Biological and Medical Sciences, in a range of research and teaching roles. There will be practicals, lectures, discussions and advice, with plenty of time to ask any questions you have. Topics are likely to include: histology and microscopy, bioinformatics and digital analysis, anti-microbial practical and global climate change and entomology.
Over the course of your time with us, we will also learn more about how you learn and study at university, the types of assessments that are commonly used, and the careers within research, industry, healthcare and support roles that Biology could lead to!
This stream is a great pathway for those who may wish to go on to study medicine, dentistry or further biosciences.
