Study in a purpose-built laboratory and develop a systematic understanding and a critical awareness of current problems and new insights.
What you'll study
Through the tools taught on this programme, you will be able to evaluate current research and advanced scholarship in medical microbiology, evaluate methodologies and develop critiques of them and, where appropriate, propose new hypotheses.Practical classes are taught in the purpose-built teaching laboratory, which is based on a routine clinical microbiology laboratory. They are designed to give you invaluable hands-on experience, particularly in basic clinical microbiology. You will also be encouraged to relate current workplace practices to your studies, discuss and critically evaluate these techniques with class members, and undertake an active role in independent study outside of the classroom.
Additional theoretical tutorials are also used throughout the year to broaden your experience of biomedical science. These tutorials include case presentations to and by students, workshops, discussion sessions, question-and-answer sessions, and oral presentations.
