We welcome all intercalating medical, dental and vet students from the University of Bristol or other universities to apply for the intercalated BA Medical Humanities.
This course, run jointly with the Department of English, is a one-year course focusing on the contribution of humanities to the accomplished practice of medicine and medical research.
Our aim is to produce better doctors: emotionally and cognitively intelligent, culturally aware and philosophically inquiring.
The learning culture in the Faculty of Arts is different to that of medical sciences. The intercalated BA Medical Humanities provides units which to give a real feel of the culture of the faculty as well as helping you to meet the challenges that come with this shift between disciplines.
One of the ways we support you on the intercalated BA Medical Humanities course is through the Oakhill Study Group. The main aim of the group is to support you in relation to your main units and to help you place the experience of this year in the context of your past and future medical career.
