Taught by paediatric researchers from across the University of Bristol, this new course for 2021 is specifically designed to help medical students to engage early in research, increasing their competitiveness for (academic) clinical jobs and a career in paediatrics. This iBSc will provide students with the opportunity to develop real world research skills and benefit from innovative programme level assessment designed to mirror the professional development and assessment of practicing clinicians.

The entire programme is oriented around research, and students will benefit from expert research led teaching drawn from the wide range of world leading paediatric research undertaken in Bristol. You will have the opportunity to conduct your own independent research, with projects ranging from neonatology to adolescence, epidemiology to molecular biology.

The course consists of three taught units and an interwoven research project.
