The branch of science concerned with the study of the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease.
"All healthcare practitioners should receive a core education of biology and medical sciences".
Medical science degree programs prepare students to work in a variety of medical- and health-related fields. Students explore all aspects of the human body and how it functions. Aspiring medical science students will be trained in a diverse study of health topics including biology, chemistry, anatomy and more.
Medical science covers many subjects which try to explain how the human body works. Starting with basic biology it is generally divided into areas of specialisation, such as anatomy, physiology and pathology with some biochemistry, microbiology, molecular biology and genetics. Students and practitioners of holistic models of health also recognise the importance of the mind-body connection and the importance of nutrition.
