Queen’s University Belfast

The intercalated BSc in Medical Science is a one-year undergraduate course taken between two years of a medical or dental course, usually after the end of 2nd or 3rd year. The programme gives students the opportunity to study scientific and medical-related topics that are of interest in far greater depth than a regular medical/dental curriculum allows.
Module choices include embryology and developmental biology, sports and exercise physiology, cardiovascular pathobiology and treatment, pharmacology and therapeutics and neuroscience. Students will also carry out a research project that provides rigorous training in research methods, an opportunity to work with experts in the field and to develop and enhance fundamental transferable skills such as high-quality research of the literature, evaluation of evidence, critical scientific thinking and scientific communication.

For further information on the BSc Medical Sciences programme, including potential research projects, please refer to the School of Medicine, Dentistry and Biomedical Sciences webpages (https://www.qub.ac.uk/schools/mdbs/Study/IntercalatedDegrees/IntercalatedBSc/)
