    HI!
    I've been searching around, both here and on the net, and so far I can only find 3/4 unis that offer a traditional [less PBL] pre-clinical part of their medicine courses.

    Oxford
    Cambridge
    St. Andrews
    Edinburgh

    Am I right? [I'd hate to apply to St. Andrews and Edinburgh find out they were PBL galore!]
    More importantly, are there any others?


    I'm not going to apply to Oxbridge, cos it would be near impossible for me to get in [damn their prestige! ;P ], but would like to apply to some other unis eg. the two scottish 'uns, where the pre-clinical course is taught in a more scientific nature, if you get my drift....

    Thanks for any information you can offer.

    If you're looking at AAA at A-level then why not apply to Oxbridge?

    Why don't you try going to each med school web site and reading about the courses offered??????

    If you had done that instead of starting htis thread, you probably could have covered 1/3 of them by now

    Yep, I'm aiming to getting and being predicted that for A-Level.
    But, since there's intense competition for medicine anyway, with most unis only really accepting AAA and those with a shining PS, at Oxbridge, it'd be even more intense! Eeeek.

    Competition squared or something at Oxbridge

    What about the Peninsula med school??? Is that not a sciency one??? I am sure some of the London ones will be.
    St G's, BL and GKT are all based on PBL from what I can see.

    Not sure about Imperial.

    Did that yesterday!
    However, virtually all have the same useless stuff, we teach via lectures, practicals etc. etc.
    No idea as to how much of each and how much emphasis on PBL.

    I don't know how much help this is but I'm at Birmingham Medical School and, from what I've heard from my colleagues (who were far more clued up when applying to MedSchool!!), the course here has significantly less PBL than most MedSchools..!

    Kings give CCC offers to some people! (Usually those with AAAAAAAAAAA predictions )

    And GKT is PBL based at any rate!

    from the GKT web site:

    Teaching

    Teaching is based on a variety of techniques: small group teaching, laboratory based practicals (including anatomical dissections and sessions in the purpose-built clinical skills centre), clinical demonstrations, ward rounds, multi-disciplinary symposia, computer-aided learning and lectures.
    You will also be taught at hospitals away from King's and in the community with general practitioners. This will give you the opportunity to experience many of the different ways in which healthcare is delivered.
