    I was just wondering, on a GEP course are there any optional modulars so you can pursue particular avenue after graduation.

    Not really bothered either way just a general wondering

    There are some selective study modules and most schools operate a sort of 'project' type piece of work at some stage. However compared to the 5 year courses these research projects tend to be quite short and basic (because in theory the grad courses were/are aimed at biomed science students who will already have done lab or project work).

    For the most part though, whatever length of course you do there won't be much selective material. Medicine is quite curriculum based so even when you get choices they tend to be trivial. E.g. - would you like to do a presentation about cancer, an essay about cancer or a poem about cancer. When I applied all the 'tomorrows doctors' rubbish was about selective modules. Supposedly it was going to stop doctors being the 2-dimensional inside-the-box thinkers that they are. But when they revised Tomorrows Docs a year or two ago they took most of that stuff out. So now you'll do even less than I did (which wasn't much). To be honest though the less selective stuff the better - it might just be my experiences but invariably they have been ****e.

    Pre-freshers take note: The OP waited 2 days to bump, not 2 minutes! That's how to do it! :P

    Thanks for that.
