Applied Medical Sciences: A Unique Degree
"Fusing Science with Medicine"
Great scientific minds cannot be developed from book learning alone. Scientific practice requires highly developed practical skills, the ability to think on your feet and intuitively know what is significant; the imagination to solve problems creatively and the capacity to troubleshoot when things go wrong in the lab. Aspiring medical scientists must learn not just a body of knowledge, but learn how to think and how to communicate their ideas to others. Scientists with these skills and a strong medical background are rare.
That’s why we have developed the Applied Medical Sciences programme. Our students will graduate not only with an outstanding academic education but with the skills employers are looking for, equipping them to enter the workplace and work with clinicians to drive the medical sciences forward into the future.
Based in UCL's world famous Division of Medicine at the Royal Free Hospital in leafy Hampstead, our students will be working alongside some of Europe's best researchers who, in addition to their teaching duties, are driving forward the cutting edge of medical innovation. With fresh, technology-led teaching and a strong focus on employability, the course is custom designed to give our graduates every advantage for the future.
