Imperial College London

In this BSc in Medical Sciences with Anaesthesia and Critical Care, you will address the major issues within Intensive Care and anaesthesia, within some of the most research active departments in the U.K. In the first module you will explore the mechanisms by which both anaesthesia and critical illness produce profound derangements in physiology and how the immune response drives these changes. You will explore how our scientific knowledge relates to clinical practice pertaining to current peri-operative and critical care standards and guidelines.

The second module focuses on the fundamentals of the research process and the skills required to undertake research activities. Specialism-specific knowledge will be the vehicle for practising these skills, whilst gaining an in-depth knowledge in a specific field.

The third and final module aims to provide you with an introduction to the research process, prior to your research project. You will be exposed to each step of the process, building your research knowledge and skills alongside acquiring an in-depth knowledge of the specialism. The assessments utilise typical research skills, whilst probing depth of specialism-specific knowledge.
