This course is open to graduates from a wide range of science and non-science backgrounds. You will be part of a cohort of students that have a wide range of experience and skills, making this an exciting and stimulating entry route into the medical profession. Upon graduation you will be awarded a primary medical qualification called the MBBS and are then eligible to undertake the General Medical Council Foundation Programme. Through an integrated study programme of medical sciences and clinical sciences, graduates are fully equipped to perform well in the GMC Foundation Programme and further develop the essential knowledge and competencies needed to pursue a specialist discipline.
Successful completion of the Foundation Year 1 programme is normally achieved within 12 months and is marked by the award of a Certificate of Experience. You will then be eligible to apply for full registration with the General Medical Council. You need full registration with a licence to practise for unsupervised medical practice in the NHS or private practice in the UK. The course is structured across four years. The first year (clinical science year) gives you a thorough understanding of clinical science and first hand clinical experience through a range of placements, giving you an insight into the patient journey and the role of multidisciplinary teams.
