International American University (IAU) in affiliation with University of Bedfordshire (UoB) now offers a 3 year Pre-Medical program in the United Kingdom, leading to a bachelor degree (BSc) in Biological or Biomedical Sciences from UoB and offers guaranteed acceptance to the 4 year Doctor of Medicine (MD) program at IAU.
The pre-med program covers a wide range of biological and molecular sciences and is offered at UoB Luton campus, in collaboration with local hospitals in the UK. The multi-disciplinary approach allows our students to investigate normal life processes and study the pathological changes that occur in human disease. The course also provides sound theoretical and practical foundation in a range of sciences that are used to aid the diagnosis of, or investigate, human diseases. The aim of the course is to produce highly trained scientists for physician training.
Areas of study include:
- Pathology and physiology
- Anatomy and medical physiology
- Cellular pathology
- Medical immunology
- Medical microbiology
- Clinical biochemistry
- Applications of immunology and microbiology
- Biology of diseases
- Cellular chemistry and genetics
- Human Metabolism and Genetics
- Medical physiology and Hematology
As per the specific provisions of the affiliation agreement between UoB and IAU, graduates of the BSc Biological/Biomedical Science program from UoB are guaranteed admissions to the 4 year Doctor of Medicine (MD) program at IAU – College of Medicine, thereby offering high school graduates an opportunity to complete the BSc + MD program within a short period of 7 years. Graduates of the MD program are eligible to practice medicine in all countries of the world including the US, UK and Canada.
