Engineering and medine: more options
- By: Simon James Carter
Editor - There is the option of doing an intercalated degree in the middle of your medical training.1 Last year I went to London and did University College London's intercalated BSc in medical physics and bioengineering, which was well taught and great fun; I thoroughly recommend it to anyone interested in the subject (www.medphys.ucl.ac.uk/teaching/undergrad/f37m.htm).
Courses are taken mainly with final year physics or engineering students, with an extra maths course to get us medics up to speed. I think Kings may do a course too; check www.traumaroom.com for lists of intercalated courses.
