Programme specification:

The programme provides:
- an opportunity for medical students to take a year out of their medical course for in-depth study of the medical aspects of Medical
Microbiology, one of the key biosciences upon which medical science is based;
- a working knowledge of good microbiological practice;
- training in the critical and practical skills (such as observation, analysis design, presentation, team co-operation);
- experience of a variety of teaching methods (lectures, laboratory practicals and computer-assisted learning packages);
- personal tutoring throughout programme;
- individual supervised research projects in final year [These take approximately 33% of the time in the final year. Laboratory-, computing- and literature-based projects are available each year, featuring a wide variety of relevant medical microbiological topics and exploiting the research expertise of staff and the research facilities of the School. The allocation process takes into account students' preferences];
- teaching that draws on the combined expertise of a large and highly rated research-active department and aims to take students to the 'cutting edge' of research developments and subject applications in medical areas of Microbiology.
