This module covers some of the fundamental skills required by biomedical scientists. This module is structured around three main themes: (1) Acquiring Essential Skills for Biomedical Sciences. The module will support students in acquiring a variety of key skills such as data and information handling, oral and written communication skills (including essay writing), experimental design, literature search techniques and appropriate use of referencing and citations in the biomedical sciences. The module will explain how certain aspect of mathematics and chemistry underpin biomedical sciences and will support students in acquiring basic numerical and chemical skills (including SI units, order of magnitude, basic geometry, calculation of concentration and molarity, scales in time, linear and logarithmic equations and graphs). Students will also be introduced to the use of statistical analysis to support biomedical sciences. (2) Considering the role of biomedical sciences in the "real world". Through personal investigations, workshops on critical thinking and a series of talks from professionals, students will be encouraged to consider the role of biomedical sciences in an applied context and gain a more global perspective of their discipline. (3) Exploring Career Pathways. Students will be given an opportunity to explore various career choices, to reflect on their own career aspirations and to meet with professional scientists from diverse backgrounds.
