Health Sciences Degree Courses

Health -Sciences 01

Health Sciences is a general term for a group of subjects that deal with the science of health outside of a full medical degree. This can take the form of anything from a general Health Studies degree to a degree in a specific set of practices, such as Occupational Therapy. Not everyone who wants to work in a healthcare profession feels that becoming a doctor is the best fit. Studying Health Sciences can offer an introduction to the science and practice of the field, allowing you to specialise later, or can offer training in a range of healthcare professions separate from practicing medicine. As with a medical degree, however, there will inevitably be an emphasis on the biological sciences in any related subject so a strong background in this area is a must for any applicant.
