Philosophy of Medicine

The programme is for students who already have some training in Philosophy and to those who wish to convert into the field after pursuing another subject at undergraduate level (which may be, but need not be, Medicine). It will enable the former students to consolidate their existing knowledge and to augment it with a close focus on issues in the Philosophy of Medicine. The latter students will normally be expected (though not strictly required) to take a special 'General Philosophy' module, which will introduce them to key theories and arguments, concepts and terminology, and classic texts from right across the philosophical spectrum.

Entry requirements

An Honours degree (2.1 or above) in philosophy or any other field (which may but need not be medicine); conversion students should show evidence of an interest in and aptitude for the subject.

Assessment methods

Assessment is through coursework, examinations and a dissertation.
