At this event Dr. Fletcher and Dr. Downer welcome the return of Human Health and Disease alumni to share their experiences of life after their undergraduate years in the BSc programme. At this event graduates provide excellent insight into their chosen careers paths in various fields including scientific research (MSc and PhD), industry and graduate medicine.
HHD helped me to develop important transferable skills for any future career
Overall I think the course is great. You are exposed to so many different areas of science that you wouldn’t have access to through other science courses, such as anatomy, pharmacology, etc. The small class size is much nicer than being in a class with hundreds of people and makes the course less daunting. Overall I think the best thing about the course is the wide variety of topics that students are encouraged to engage with as it really opens up the fields in which students are interested in as opposed to being limited to one area.
I really enjoyed my time in HHD. Great comprehensive course, that has set me up very well for my current and future studies. Would highly recommend to anyone who, like me, was unsure about medicine during CAO, but had a great interest into biomedical sciences.
