Imperial College London, United Kingdom
Imperial’s Faculty of Medicine is one of the largest in Europe, with medical campuses across north and west London and partnerships with a wide range of NHS Trusts, hospitals and clinics. In response to several drivers for change, including updated GMC guidance, technological development in education and healthcare, the planned Medical Licensing Assessment (MLA) and expectations of medical practice within the NHS of the future, a review of the MBBS programme has been undertaken and a new curriculum developed.
Our teaching is enriched by our internationally competitive research and clinical expertise, so you’ll be learning at the very cutting edge of the subject. We deliver the course through a range of innovative and traditional teaching methods, including lectures, small group teaching, computer workshops, laboratory classes and problem-based learning.
The emphasis of our new MBBS programme is on the development of Professional Values and Behaviours, Professional skills, and Professional Knowledge, in line with the GMC’s most recently published Outcomes for Graduates (2018). The redeveloped spiral curriculum is delivered in three phases and provides exciting opportunities for our students and staff including:
- More opportunities for clinical skills training and patient experience.
- A case-based learning approach to facilitate integration and translation of scientific knowledge to clinical care.
- A structure to facilitate active, life-long learning, with each module building on the previous one, adding more depth and complexity.
- A Programmatic Assessment strategy to enable you to build your knowledge throughout your studies.
- A focus on the application of science and research skills in Phase 2, expanding upon early science exposure in Phase 1.
- A redeveloped and enhanced tutoring programme to support your progression with a focus on Study Skills.
- Continued opportunities across Phase 3 for reflective learning, to be recorded and reviewed by you and your tutor.
The new MBBS curriculum is aligned to the College's Learning and Teaching Strategy, and our in-house developed bespoke Curriculum Map (Sofia). This will enable you to study specific learning outcomes, mapped to your assessments.
In Phase 1, you will focus both on the scientific basis of health and disease and the foundations of clinical practice, including early clinical exposure. The course will include modules on lifestyle medicine and prevention and case-based learning, with opportunities to undertake clinical improvement and research projects.
During Phase 2, you will work towards your BSc by completing a series of modules and a supervised research project in a scientific/medical subject of your choice.
This gives you the chance to develop your scientific knowledge and research skills, as well as expose you to research at the forefront of the field.
In Phase 3, students will build on the knowledge, skills and behaviours developed in the first four years of the MBBS. In hospital and community settings, students will experience how clinical teams work together to deliver patient care from beginning to the end of life. Throughout Phase 3, significant emphasis will be placed on preparing students for clinical practice.

BA in Medicine
University of Oxford, United Kingdom
The practice of Medicine offers a breadth of experiences impossible to find in any other subject. Every day brings different patients with different needs. It’s a great choice for scientists who strive to understand and apply research findings to improve the lives of the patients in their care. It offers a meaningful career that is prestigious, secure and well paid. However, practising Medicine can be arduous, stressful, frustrating and bureaucratic and is not suited to everyone. You need to be sure that Medicine is the right choice for you. These pages will help you work that out, but there’s no better way to find out for sure than by gaining insight into medical practice by seeing it in action and talking to those who provide healthcare. Studying Medicine because that is what is expected of you is never a good idea; make sure that your motives for choosing to do so are well reasoned.

Medical Genetics iBSc
Kings College London, United Kingdom
The Medical Genetics Intercalated BSc is an exciting course covering the latest genetic concepts and advances, together with their application in medicine.

This knowledge is fuelling a move to more personalised medicine based on individual genetic information. In addition, the first gene therapy medicines targeting both genetically inherited and acquired diseases are beginning to be approved. The course also develops a critical approach to the acquisition of knowledge, problem-solving and communication skills, and an understanding of research methods and rationales.

University of Leicester, United Kingdom
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.

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.
