The BSc in Applied Health - Public Health is an intercalated full time course over one year that offers you the chance to follow a particular interest whilst ensuring you are well grounded in essential skills for learning, teaching and research. You will develop these core skills whilst exploring aspects of public health in more detail.
A longitudinal placement, supported by public health supervisors in either a Local Authority or in Public Health England will run throughout the academic year to contextualise learning.
Critical appraisal skills, knowledge of research methods, and an understanding of the systems you are working in will all help you to practise more effectively as future doctors.
The Applied Health Suite is designed to give budding doctors and dentists the best chance to develop these generic skills so that you can become better clinicians and go on to achieve excellence. Many of our students go on to win prizes, publish their work and present at conferences and this course is a potential pathway for those wishing to pursue an academic career.
All the programmes in the Applied Health Suite offer the support of a joint administrative and personal tutor team, plus the peer support that comes from shared induction and learning for all students on the BSc Applied Health suite.
