Our flexible learning programmes mean that in their 2nd year, undergraduates can choose to study things things that really excite them, and which will help them to develop transferable skills

Modules include:
UOMS2013 - Pathological Mechanisms of Disease
Pathology is the study of disease processes such as inflammation, cell death, and the development of cancer. It explains disease in a mechanistic way, i.e. as an abnormality in the normal functioning of the body. Students will study a number of key topics including; Disease and its affects on evolution, and visa versa and, the relationship between disease mechanisms and the global impact of disease.


UOSM2016 The Human Brain and Society
The human brain is a phenomenal structure the attributes of which are often taken for granted until disease disorder or disability impact upon us as individuals. The aim of this module is to provide tomorrow's leaders and policy makers with a basic understanding of how the human brain functions and an appreciation of the importance of mental health for 21st century society. Topics will be delivered by senior academics of the Southampton Neuroscience Group (SoNG).

UOMS2027 Health Policy and Economics
The module will introduce students to the use of economic concepts and theory when talking and thinking about health, health care and health care systems. The importance of health for any human being, the size of the health sector, the limited resources available to meet the needs of an ageing population (with higher levels of chronic disease) make health economics an important aspect of everyday life. At the same time, the relevance of health economics to a large number of sectors (e.g. health services, public health, medicine, pharmaceutical and health technology industry) makes this module of direct interest to undergraduate students from different Schools across the University.
