Medicine – Not Just About Medics

The subject of Medicine interests many students, however they won’t all become doctors. Teams of scientists, engineers and mathematicians work alongside medical doctors, helping them to understand the spread of disease, discover better treatments and cures, and develop technology to aid more accurate diagnosis and treatment.

Medicine – Not Just About Medics events provide more information about how STEM degrees can link to the field of Medicine, and why STEM is important for medical advancement. Students will get involved in hands-on practicals, from subjects like Chemistry, Physics, Food Science, Engineering, Health and Biosciences.

Please do read on for further information, and if you’d like to apply to take part you can fill out the form here. For enquiries or more information, please contact the STEM@Leeds Team at
