The healthcare sector is best placed to benefit from the merging of physical, digital and biological systems brought on by the Fourth Industrial Revolution, but it is also the least well-prepared. The new generation of healthcare providers need to navigate an altogether new landscape – get that head start at Foundation in Science (Medical Sciences).
In addition to acquiring a strong foundation in STEM subjects, you will also receive an early exposure to medical sciences, specially tailored to ease you into the intensive medical science degree (medicine, nursing or optometry) of your choosing.
Our notable and experienced teaching faculty of both professors and healthcare practitioners will impart knowledge and skills required for understanding and responding effectively to each patient as an individual and not merely based on symptoms – a vital trait for healthcare providers.
You will also be exposed to medical terminology, as well as therapeutic and diagnostic interventions, professionalism, legal/ethical issues, communication skills, and leadership roles to prepare you in functioning safely and efficiently within the medical community.
You want to be a part of the noble profession of healing and caring for others – Let us show you the way.
