Course summary

Our graduate-entry Medicine MBBS course offers a great opportunity to applicants who already have a degree but want to pursue a career in medicine. You will be part of a cohort of mature students who have a wide range of experience and skills, making this an exciting and stimulating entry route into the medical profession. This course is open to graduates from a wide range of science and non-science backgrounds. As a St George’s medical graduate you will begin your career equipped to thrive as a doctor, bringing scientific excellence to the bedside and reflecting our core values of patient safety, patient-centredness and professionalism. Our alumni go on to excel in a wide range of medical and surgical fields and many return to study as a postgraduate to develop their career further. Year 1 gives you a thorough understanding of clinical science using problem-based learning. You will also gain some first-hand clinical experience in visits to general practice to give you an insight into the patient journey and the role of multidisciplinary teams. At the start of year 2 (T year) you will begin your transition from clinical science to clinical practice. You will undertake three five-week clinical attachments (medicine, general practice and surgery), interspersed with problem-based learning and lectures to consolidate and maximise the learning from your clinical experience. In year 3 (P year) you will rotate between 10-week clinical attachments in four blocks (Surgery & Surgical specialities; Medicine & Medical specialities; Paediatrics, Obstetrics & Gynaecology, and Neurology & Psychiatry). In your final year (F year) you will deepen your understanding of different areas of clinical practice through a series of assistantships where you shadow junior doctors to help you understand the role for which you are preparing. In this year you can also arrange to undertake elective study anywhere in the world. At the end of the course you will receive your MBBS degree, which is a primary medical qualification (PMQ). Holding a PMQ entitles you to provisional registration with the General Medical Council, provided there are no concerns about your fitness to practise. **Course highlights**- Contact with patients from year 1 of the course- Shared campus with one of the largest teaching hospitals in the UK, which has a major trauma centre, helipad and a range of specialist services; it is embedded in the local community and also provides a large range of regional specialist services- Authentic inter-professional learning experience: learning alongside biomedical science and other healthcare professionals reflects the multidisciplinary nature of the healthcare workplace environment. - Learn anatomy through demonstrator-led whole-body prosection- Patient-focused education with a strong emphasis on communicating with patients from a range of backgrounds- Two opportunities to undertake student-selected components (SSC) of study on areas of interest to you- Careers advice embedded into our teaching**About St George’s, University of London**As the UK’s specialist health university, we’ve been improving health for over 250 years.
