(Student Profile)

Charlotte Burford

4617.jpg "I loved the emphasis the Clinical Neuroscience MSc placed on relating basic science to clinical practice. I came from a scientific background so found it fascinating to explain patients’ signs and symptoms in terms of the underlying anatomy, physiology and pathology. I was also applying for graduate entry medical courses so I really enjoyed the opportunity to explore conditions from the patient’s perspective, which you don’t often get with basic science courses. The research component of the MSc is also one of the highlights as you get the chance to work with some world-leading experts."
