Healthcare Science Websites

For anyone who is currently studying Healthcare Science with us (or elsewhere) or for anyone thinking about doing so, this website and a blog post by our own Vice Chancellor have recently been put together and are well worth a look for further information both about the roles of Healthcare Scientists and the role of Universities in training them.

For more information about our Life Sciences and Physiological Sciences degree programs, see our course pages:

Or the previous blog entry on our courses.

The Plymouth Student Scientist

While we are on the subject of dissertation projects, you can see a selection of the best projects and literature reviews from our students (and from other departments in the Faculty of Science and Technology) at The Plymouth Student Scientist. This online journal showcases the work of our students and will give you an idea of the types of research projects that we offer to our students. You can read through examples from the past 5 years on the archives page.

Final year poster session

The last act for our final year students is to present their dissertation projects in the form of a poster to staff. Yesterday saw the annual poster session (see the photos below). Just a quick note to wish all of our final year students good luck in their future careers and to say how much the staff have enjoyed teaching you all!

School of Biomedical and Biological sciences to restructure

Exciting news this month from the school - it will form two new schools at the University from 1st August 2013.

School of Biomedical and Healthcare Science (In the new faculty of Medicine, Biomedicine and Dentistry) -
Head of School, Prof Neil Avent

School of Biological Sciences (In the new faculty of Science & Environment)
Head of School (To be announced)

The new school of Biomedical & Healthcare science will offer exciting new opportunities to study alongside medical and dental students, and a new health science campus at Derriford is being planned to relocate our research labs there. Our long term objectives will be to encourage our Biomedicine, Healthcare science and Human Bioscience graduates to study graduate entry medicine, a higher research degree, or career progression in the NHS or Industry. Further updates will be posted on this Blog as the school develops.
