About the course
Are you good with people, interested in health and wellbeing, curious about digital technologies?
By studying WMG’s new BSc in Digital Healthcare Science, you will learn how to support individuals to help themselves to better health and wellbeing, and to use leading-edge science and technology to contribute to improving health services for individual users. The degree has been developed as a result of a recognised need from Healthcare organisations for a new type of healthcare scientist equipped with digital and further transferable skills.
With four sciences -behavioural science; healthcare and physiological sciences; science of digital healthcare; science of shared clinical decision-making – interwoven throughout the programme, this course will provide a breadth of scientific training. This will include high-level consultation skills; a holistic, evidence- and values-based approach to shared decision-making; and clinical physiology. You will also develop the knowledge and skills to work with the digital technologies that play an ever-increasing role in supporting health and wellbeing.
The course will be a mix of taught sciences and practical placements. Each year, four sciences will be blended into a number of concentrated learning blocks. Between these blocks, you will complete a programme of activities including an average of one day per week on a clinical setting placement or other relevant health placement. Your third year continues to build on this and addresses practice and research in more depth.
