Careers and Employability

Benefits of Intercalating and Career Prospects

Intercalated degrees enable medical students to gain a scientific perspective of sport and exercise; for example, as a form of treatment for a variety of conditions as well as how to implement behaviour change in order to achieve positive outcomes regarding the rehabilitation and prevention of diseases (e.g. diabetes).

In addition to the enhanced career opportunities typically available to medical students who intercalate, this additional training may also provide a strong foundation for postgraduate study (MSc, MPhil or PhD) and clinical research positions within the NHS.
