Graduate Entry Medicine MBChB

This course is for graduates with an appropriate life sciences degree who come from a widening participation background. You'll bypass phase 1 (the first year) of the A100 Medicine degree and start in phase 2 with an introductory module instead of a research project.

Based on a patient-centred approach, the course is designed around common and important clinical conditions. It relates clinical medicine to the underlying medical sciences. You'll have the opportunity to develop your clinical competencies from the very start.

The course includes clinical teaching on wards in hospitals, clinics (both in general practice and in hospitals), lectures, seminars, tutorials, small group work, dissection and personal development supported by experienced teachers and personal academic tutors. We aim to ensure you're well prepared for a career in medicine.
