Course summary

Meet patients from the outset, learn from experts in world-class facilities, and find out what it takes to become a doctor working in the profession today. Our excellent facilities include our purpose built teaching environment, state-of-the-art Clinical Skills Unit and anatomical dissection of human cadavers.Doctors are witness to the most joyful and difficult moments of people’s lives. It’s no wonder they have such meaningful and rewarding careers. We are looking to attract high-achieving, aspirational students, from all backgrounds, who display a caring attitude and values consistent with those of the NHS constitution. We aim to help you become skilled, professional and caring doctors prepared to make patient care your first priority.We have more than 40 years' experience of medical education at Leicester, which means that you will benefit from excellent training within an established, supportive community. Throughout the course, you will learn from expert academics and medical practitioners working day-to-day in the NHS. Their teaching is directly influenced by their expertise in a wide range of clinical disciplines, and in such diverse fields as heart disease, cancer and genetics – some of the areas where Leicester's reputation is truly global.Our course is truly patient-focussed, and enables you to take forward the knowledge, skills, attitudes and values that are required to practise medicine effectively and successfully in the modern healthcare environment. You will be prepared for the challenges that we are experiencing today and the inevitable changes in practice that will continue to occur in the future.We run an integrated curriculum. Teaching and learning is based around patients and their needs. It is not a problem-based learning course, but rather a patient-focused curriculum which is delivered through a mixture of lectures, small group work and clinical teaching. This ensures that you learn the essential science underpinning how the human body operates, whilst learning how things can go wrong through the study of patients.Your experience will be hands-on - you will work with real patients from the beginning. It's all designed to be clinically relevant - enabling you to acquire the medical knowledge, along with the professional competencies, that are essential to practise medicine effectively.Our world-class facilities provide a state-of-the art learning environment and allow you to experience what other medical students don’t. For example, we are one of the few courses to offer full-body human dissection. All first year students are provided with iPads. Study material is delivered directly onto these iPads. All the resources you need will be at your fingertips throughout the clinical phase of the course.You will also have the chance to develop your clinical procedures in our state-of-the-art Clinical Skills Unit. During the clinical phase of the course, we offer a wide range of hospital and community placements in the region, including Leicester’s big city hospitals, and district centres across the Midlands, Lincolnshire and Northamptonshire. This means you gain valuable experience in a diverse range of environments.If you’re interested in medical research and/or enhancing your career prospects, you can take an intercalated degree by undertaking full-time research with experts at Leicester or elsewhere.Towards the end of the course, there are additional opportunities to take an elective placement in a location of your choice - it could be anywhere in the world.
