University of Sheffield
On this course you’ll explore key topics in medicine and health in their medical, social and cultural complexity.
Over the duration of the course we’ll introduce you to different disciplinary perspectives on medicine and health, as well as creative and problem-based learning approaches. You’ll develop the interdisciplinary skills needed to tackle complex medical challenges in research and in practice.
Your study will take in medical science, as well as (where relevant) art, film, photography, music, and social media, and you’ll use a range of media when researching and communicating topics. The course will develop your skills in critical reading and communication.
The course gives you the tools to develop your skills as a practitioner or analyst of medicine and healthcare – in whatever capacity, as a researcher, doctor, or in policy, governance, communication or public engagement and education around medicine.
- You need to have successfully completed at least three years of your current Medicine course before the start date of the intercalated masters degree
- You need to have a three year average GPA of 4.0 out of 5.0 (where your course is graded differently we will consider equivalent grades)

As an external student, please ensure you are eligible to be released for an intercalated masters degree by your university. Timelines and processes will vary by university.
Most of our courses will accept applications up to May each year for intercalating students. This will vary depending on your circumstances and the capacity on our courses, therefore the sooner you apply, the sooner you could secure a place. You should also factor in any internal deadlines or processes with your university to confirm that you can be released to take an intercalated masters degree.
