Medicine

This five-year programme enables you to apply for provisional registration with the General Medical Council. With a focus on developing future doctors who have patient safety, reflection and professionalism at the core of their practice, the MBChB involves early and extensive clinical placements with a focus on community and mental health care settings, as well as exposure to medicine, surgery and a range of hospital specialities.

Equipped with medical leadership skills, resilience and fully prepared for practice, you will graduate as a doctor ready to make a major contribution to the healthcare services of today and tomorrow.

It is anticipated that the first intake to this course will be for September 2020 entry. However this is subject to GMC approval. Please see our website for further details.
