Aimed at medical, dentistry, and veterinary science students, intercalation supplements your degree and is a great way to explore a new subject area, enhance your employability, and broaden your perspective. On this one-year, intercalation course, you’ll learn to think constructively about the ethical aspects of your current training and explore how this might impact your future career.
You'll explore the complex ethical dilemmas arising from working in medicine and healthcare, and gain the skills you need to respond quickly and effectively. You'll study a range of issues including consent, responsibility, abortion, euthanasia, patient rights, and genetic enhancement. You'll also learn alongside non-intercalation students including professionals in a range of fields, allowing you to benefit from their insights and experiences.
If you're looking to gain a more advanced qualification, this course is also available as a Masters degree. Both courses have the same taught content, however Masters course students also complete an independent research dissertation.
The world class Brotherton Library holds a wide variety of manuscript, archive and early printed material in its Special Collections – valuable assets for your independent research.
