This is Clinical Sciences

Integrating science and health

Clinical Sciences is a multidisciplinary course with a clinical focus and strong emphasis on anatomy, physiology and evidence-based medicine. Students will develop knowledge, understanding, attitudes and skills that support lifelong learning and professional development. Graduates will leave Bradford ready to meet the ever-changing needs of challenging healthcare environments.

There are two points of entry into Clinical Sciences:

BSc (Hons) Clinical Sciences - for students who wish to study a medically relevant science degree with clinical contact and a strong focus on anatomy and physiology.

Foundation in Clinical Sciences/Medicine for students who wish to progress onto the BSc in Clinical Sciences or other healthcare careers but do not have science A levels or the entry requirements for direct entry to Year 1.

Foundation Year

Our Foundation Year has been designed to open up opportunities for under-represented groups to enter medicine and healthcare education. There is a bespoke opportunity for widening participation students to apply to enter the MBChB programme at Sheffield Medical School at the end of the Foundation Year and Year 1 of Clinical Sciences. 

Foundation Year students have also successfully applied to other UK medical schools including Leeds, Hull York and Brighton and Sussex.

We have 2 courses in this area.

...I came out of my comfort zone

Poshia Boateng - BSc (Hons) Clinical Sciences

"Clinical Science is a bit similar to Biomedical Science, however, we look more at the clinical aspect of the body. So we look at the body in both health and disease. For example, some of the modules that I’m studying, like Pathology, we look at how some diseases affect the tissues within the body.

We also look at anatomy as well, in year one, we did cadaveric dissections, so we dissect the body to learn about the different organs. I feel like that’s what I enjoy the most of the course."
