The science of infectious disease and epidemiology is an interdisciplinary subject situated at the interface between medicine, molecular and cell biology and the social sciences. This fact is taken into account by offering MBBS and BDS students the possibility of studying these subjects thoroughly in theory and practice in the form of an intercalated BSc in Infectious Disease and Epidemiology.
Detailed knowledge of infectious disease and epidemiology is important for all doctors, given the ubiquity of infectious diseases in all parts of medical practice. Thus there is a growing need for scientifically trained doctors with an interest in infection, who will be in a position to carry out investigations designed to answer basic and translational research questions. This programme builds on the strength and experience in teaching and learning from the Centre of Immunology and Infectious Disease and Centre for Primary Care and Public Health at the Blizard Institute, Barts & The London Medical School.
