The primary goal of Biomedical Science is to enhance understanding of human body function in health and disease. In the first two years of your degree you will gain a broad knowledge of subjects related to medical science and in scientific research methods. In addition, you will enhance your critical analysis abilities while developing your interpersonal skills through team-working and oral/written communications. Advanced knowledge of physiology will be acquired in the third and fourth years of the programme. Physiology is the study of how the body works. More than any other of the biological sciences, it involves using an understanding of biological processes at the most basic level to explain how a whole organ or an entire body functions. It is this integrated aspect that puts Physiology at the centre of the biological and medical sciences.
