Healthcare science is the applied science dealing with the application of science, technology, engineering or mathematics to the delivery of healthcare.

Healthcare scientists are those scientists directly involved in delivering the diagnosis, treatment, care and support of patients in healthcare systems, rather than those individuals whose primary focus is on academic research.

Healthcare science stretches across a wide range of scientific specialisms, encompassing biology, genetics, physiology, physics and bioengineering.
