Course summary

Overview

The Division of Medicine is multidisciplinary and combines excellent facilities with world-leading scientific and clinical expertise. A fundamental aim of the Division of Medicine is to train and inspire the next generation of leading scientists and clinicians. Students benefit from a training environment that fosters collaboration across the interface of basic science with clinical medicine and its practice within our associated hospitals, as well as the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries. Together these provide an excellent educational experience and unrivalled opportunities for networking, career development and eventual employment across the biomedical and healthcare sectors.

Careers

It is expected that the MBPhD graduate will follow a career that involves research. Some alumni have become full-time researchers with no clinical role, but this is unusual: the majority enjoy clinical work as well. The intense research background makes MBPhD graduates highly eligible for careers in academic medicine, but also in industry, in health policy, and in the financial services industry. After graduating from the medical school, graduates almost always go into junior doctor training posts, often in the 'Academic Foundation' higher stream, later branching out into different medical specialties with varying involvement in research.

Employability

MBPhD graduates are typically slightly more mature than regular MBBS graduates, and they will have a strong background in basic human biology with excellent and highly honed presentation and problem-solving skills, making them excellent junior doctors who are welcomed throughout the UK. In later years they are particularly well qualified for clinical research fellow posts where their scientific background gives them a head start over most medical graduates who have had very little or no research training. Graduates can expect to find employment in the NHS, universities, research institutes, pharmaceutical industry and private sector employers.
