It will stand you in excellent stead for your future career, whatever branch of medicine you choose to specialise in.

Previous intercalating students rated the course highly. Many students carrying out laboratory projects have been included on scientific publications, giving a significant boost to their medical careers. These include single author publications in the Bioscience Horizons journal and students have also presented their work at national meetings.
