Graduate Entry Medicine BMBS

This course makes school-leavers into practising doctors. In the first 2 years, basic medical science is taught as a series of courses organised into 4 concurrent themes: molecular/cellular aspects of medicine; human structure and function; healthcare in the community; and early clinical and professional development. Integration of science and clinical practice starts at the beginning of the course. Through a series of lectures, seminars and visits to general practices and hospitals, students are familiarised with patient contact and learn the principles of clinical history-taking and examination. Student-selected components allow the study of topics in depth. In the 3rd year, students will undertake a supervised research project of their choice, leading to the award of BMedSci. Following this, students will move into the clinical phases where they will rotate through a series of placements at major teaching trusts in Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Lincolnshire, and in the community. Experiencing different sites across the counties is an educational and desirable feature of the training.
