A male student in a white labcoat working with test tubes in a chemistry labA growing awareness of how the different levels of life interact has brought together the disciplines of biology and medicine and added to our understanding of how these interactions affect health and disease. You will study a diverse range of medically-related topics (such as cell biology, anatomy, and biochemistry) to better understand how the many levels and approaches to health and medicine are complementary, and you will learn to apply the principles to assess and solve problems as they relate to real-world health issues.
