Choice of BSc

March 27, 2011 at 7:48 pm (life!, med, school)

tonight’s the deadline for selection of the BSc that i’ll be doing for the next whole year. i’ve picked:

BSc Course Selection


// Your selections are as follows:

Choice 1 Gastroenterology and Hepatology (GASTRO)

Choice 2 Neuroscience and Mental Health (NEURO)

Choice 3 Global Health (HEALTH)

Choice 4 Haematology (HAEM)

Choice 5 Pharmacology (PHARM)

not really because they are the 5 topics i have the most interest in, but rather due to the manner the courses are structured and their clinical relevance. if the course selection were to reflect purely my interests, my selection would probably have been (out of the limited choices of BSc that Imperial offers):

BSc Course Selection


// Your selections are as follows:

Choice 1 Neuroscience and Mental Health (NEURO)

Choice 2 Surgery and Anaesthesia (SURG)

Choice 3 Endocrinology (ENDO)

Choice 4 Global Health (HEALTH)

Choice 5 Immunity and Infection (IMMUN)

anyway it’s all kind of moot, as my first choice is actually Sports Medicine which Imperial doesn’t offer – i’ve already applied externally to do the course at either Edinburgh, Loughborough or Queen Mary’s. Loughborough is the best university for the course, and the course structure seems tons more relevant and interesting (albeit science-cy and less clinically relevant), but Edinburgh is more renowned as a college. and of course i get to have a year out in Scotland. HMMMM tempting!

    hey i’m doing ortho now under the sports team. I must say that it is really quite interesting, especially if torn ACLs PCLs and menisci are your thing! surgeries are also not the typical ortho, bone marrow splashing ops that you usually see. Its more delicate and more subspecialised, but its fun!

      is there any field in sports med where you don’t need to do surgery?
