Course summary

COURSE OVERVIEW

Our Graduate Entry Medicine programme is unique in Wales and one of just a handful of similar programmes of medical study in the UK open to graduates of any discipline from the UK, EU and overseas.

This accelerated, four-year medical degree follows an innovative, integrated spiral curriculum designed to reflect the way in which clinicians approach patients and how patients present to doctors.

You will study the basic biomedical sciences in the context of clinical medicine, public health, pathology, therapeutics, ethics, and psycho-social issues in patient management.

Together with a strong focus on clinical and communication skills, you will develop the academic, practical, and personal qualities to practise medicine competently and with confidence.

Our entry interview process is structured to take account of these qualities needed as a doctor, as set out in 'Good Medical Practice', and the capacity to meet the outcomes of ‘Outcomes for Graduates'. In summary:

  • Communication Skills
  • Problem solving skills
  • Coping with pressure
  • Insight and Integrity
  • Passion for medicine/resilience to succeed

MEDICINE EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES

On successful completion of the course, you will graduate with an MBBCh Medicine from Swansea University, allowing you to progress to Foundation 1 within a clinical environment.
