BiosciencesEL1775Career roles in healthcare and biomedical researchUniversity of East London14 Jul 2017Friday 14 July 2017, 10am - 3pmFullhttps://tasters.gradsintocareers.co.uk/Courses/Details/EL1775Have you ever wondered who is involved in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of different medical conditions? When people are concerned about their health or they are suffering with pain, they tend to seek help and advice from their doctor. During their doctor’s appointment, blood tests are taken to find out what the medical condition is, and medication is likely to be given to ensure the patient gets better. The doctor is usually the first person a patient will see; however, the patient’s journey involves other healthcare practitioners, but also working in the background is the army of laboratory scientists and medical researchers.

This practical, hands-on taster event will allow you to follow the journey of a patient from assessment through to diagnosis and treatment. Using a medical case study, you will be introduced to a patient in a podiatry clinic setting and to learn about patient assessment, and to then observe how some of the most advanced laboratory techniques and equipment are used for the analysis of patient samples to aid with diagnosis. You then delve into the field of pharmacology which is the research discipline related to identifying the action and mechanism of action of drugs and to determining the right dose. You will thus learn on how research and application of knowledge enables clinicians make accurate decisions on treatment options.

This event will allow you to experience the different stages involved in treating a clinical case study. It would be of interest to all students considering a career in the NHS, healthcare or biotech industries. As part of the taster, you'll have access to our state of the art labs and facilities whilst completing your analysis and research. You'll also have the opportunity to talk to current academics and students studying within the school of Health, Sport and Biosciences.
This taster course is open to Year 12 students or anyone thinking of starting their undergraduate studies in September 2018. We would like to welcome students who are currently studying Science at A-level or BTEC.
