Samihah Moazam, intercalating from medical studies at The University of Manchester

I decided to intercalate during fourth year as I wanted to take the opportunity to study something different, take a break from medicine before my final year and also build up my CV for the future. I had started to become interested in globachelorl health after two related SSC's . Its not a topic that is given much attention in medical school but is something we will come across in all aspects of medicine. I inquired about the course at HCRI once it became available and it seemed to cover all areas that I was interested in learning more about.
I'm really enjoying the course. The modules are diverse and cover a wide range of topics from different view points. There's also opportunities to expand your knowledge in areas you're interested in through presentations and written assignments.

James Gill,
intercalating from his medical studies at The University of Sheffield

I'm one of the external intercalating medical students (from Sheffield).  I had just finished my third year in medical training and I decided that now would be a good time to embrace a new challenge before finishing my medical degree. I applied to the Globachelorl Health bachelorchelor as I'm interested in learning about how long-term globachelorl health issues such HIV and TB are being tackled and also about how the social determinants affecting health, such as poverty, need to be addressed to create equitable universal healthcare.
Practical support and advice for current students and applicants is available from the Disability Advisory and Support Service. Email:
