PROGRAMME DESCRIPTIONThe Medical Physiology BSc programme aims to give a sound introduction to understanding the mechanisms that underlie the normal function of the body, at the cellular, tissue, organ and whole human levels. The programme provides an understanding of human health and disease.

The first year is common to all the Biomedical Science programmes to allow students to make informed choices in subsequent years. The second year allows more flexibility, with a core of essential modules that cover cellular and integrative physiology, pharmacology and neuroscience, plus a choice of modules from related fields within the School of Biomedical Sciences and elsewhere in King's.

In addition, students may take a 15-credit module in an unrelated field, such as a modern language. The final year courses reflect the research interests of the academic staff, and here in particular students benefit from the wide range of expertise at King's in neuroscience, developmental biology and physiology.

ABOUT THE Department of Physiology
CAREERS Like all degree level studies, the physiology programmes develop your ability to think critically and creatively and to work independently. The Department of Physiology is proud of its results: 75 to 85 per cent of its students in any one year receive good (upper second or first class) degrees. Our graduates go on to various destinations including medicine or dentistry, and further degrees in the biomedical sciences. We do not expect, however, that everyone with a physiology degree will embark on a scientific career. Those who choose not to continue in science follow a wide variety of career paths. In the past these have included law, journalism, accountancy, the film industry and banking, as well as bioengineering, fish farming, forensic science, ophthalmology and radiography. Recent graduates have found employment as…. • International Partnerships Assistant, a uK university • Medical Writer and Research Associate, Medaxial • Pharmacy Assistant, a hospital • MSc student, King’s College London
TEACHING STYLE Teaching is delivered by a combination of lectures, seminars, tutorials and practical laboratory work. Tutorials are teaching sessions between an academic tutor and small groups of students where there is an opportunity to discuss work in detail and where subjects for coursework are agreed. Student seminars, involving larger groups, poster presentations (like those used at formal scientific meetings) and personal tutor sessions supplement tutorials.
STRUCTURE OF PROGRAMMES & ASSESSMENT Assessment is usually by written examination at the end of each academic year, with increasing weight given to later years of study. First-year students have mid-sessional tests in most first-semester modules in January. Increasing importance is being given to coursework which often takes the form of essays or reports of practical classes.
LOCATION Our modern, well-funded laboratories cater for the full range of programmes on offer. As a large multi-faculty university, we have excellent social and sporting facilities, but a key attraction is our central London location. Our three campuses along the River Thames are located in the cultural and social heart of the capital and offer our students the opportunity to explore art galleries, theatres, museums, markets, restaurants and cafés.
