Course Summary

Course description

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.
