The Department of Health has introduced a new career pathway for Healthcare Scientists. Students are employed within NHS Departments and released to undertake academic study. This includes clinical science training to provide an appropriately trained workforce to work in the NHS. This requires the education and training of practitioners in the division of neurosensory science. This division is made up of 3 pathways:
- Ophthalmic & Vision Sciences
Your future career prospects
This Clinical Science (Neurosensory Sciences) course offered at the Aston University sits within the Department of Health’s vision for the Healthcare Science workforce. The aim is to develop practitioners who can improve the scientific profile within healthcare and who have the requisite skills to enhance both the diagnosis and treatment of patients in the NHS. As such it is predominantly aimed at graduates employed within the Scientist Training Programme.
It is also aimed at NHS practitioners within the disciplines who wish to undertake an academic qualification as part of their professional development. Individual modules can be undertaken as part of the School’s flexible credit accumulation system leading to a post-graduate certificate, diploma or master's qualification.
