Medical Sciences teaching and support is delivered by multiple departments across the University of Cambridge. Thankfully there is one dedicated Biological Sciences Libraries Team to help navigate this sometimes complex landscape. Information about specific subjects and their associated library services can be found below. For study skills and teaching resources provided by the Biological Sciences Libraries team, please visit the Study Skills and Support section of this guide.
You can find the many Medical Sciences reading lists on our online reading list tool, as well as through your dedicated Moodle course pages.
Please note, some lists might be restricted to current students only due to copyrighted materials.

There are a lot of papers to choose from at this level with multiple combinations across subjects. We will not list them all there and encourage you to explore the Moodle course for your paper(s).
