We should keep in mind that Medical Science,Medical, and Health Science usually tuckles the issue about Science. So the difference between these three are the following:

1. Medical Science-it usually pertains or deals the maintenance of health and the prevention (preventive measures) and treatment of disease (interventions for health).

2. Medical- usually talks about the preparation to be used in treating diseases or applying interventions that literally involves surgical or non-surgical practice to promote well-being.

3. Health Science- is a field that usually tuckles multidisciplinary. It also involves the combination , psycho-social, bio-medical,  aspects of societal health, and  health care. Furthermore, it pertains or focuses about the design and explore about the ,medical-technological, organizational health interventions.
