I don't think it is; it involves a fair amount of science and theory, but a lot of medicine is an art, especially with regards to clinical skills and communication skills.

Nope, technically it's a vocational degree (like btecs).

Retards doing medicine will struggle to get a job in the saturated market because it's not a STEM degree. There are so many medicine graduates.

Strictly speaking it's usually both. Medical sciences degree is normally awarded after 3 years, and then MB ChB after another 2.

There aren't even any junior doctor jobs at the moment - last year's graduates took them all!

I know- it's a worry exactly what I'm gonna do at the end of my medicine degree, because, let's face it, it's just not to the same standards as a STEM degree. If you're relegated to studying medicine, you may as well sign onto jobseeker's early- it's not like your knowledge of the related life and human sciences will ever enrich society.

Why oh why didn't I take a Stem degree when I had the chance? I did well in chemistry A level!

The STEMM acronym has been doing the rounds for a while (http://www.bristol.ac.uk/equalityand...r/swancharter/).

Not in my opinion. And I'm glad, because it means it hopefully won't be associated with snobbery and comments like this:

I don't consider myself to be a "science" student by any means.

It doesn't matter. You could consider it one, I guess. It seems to be classed as a STEM subject here: http://www.russellgroup.ac.uk/uploads/STEM-briefing.pdf

Only idiots on TSR think doing a STEM subject makes them better...

Then we went to very different med schools, though I suspect level of integration is the difference rather than content.

I'd say it is, because medicine has it's roots in science.

That goes without saying :p:

Did you consider yourself to be a science student over a medical student?

I think there's a reason why the degree we're working towards (or in your case, have already achieved) is entitled MB ChB/MB BS/BM BCh etc as opposed to BSc. Medicine is way more than just science.

Having done a 3 year BSc before, I don't view my current experiences as being very similar at all. But that's just my personal experience.

Oh boy.

There's just about enough jobs to cover all Foundation places. Last year we were a few short. That excludes any preference to your rotations (if you did poorly in your cohort, you have little say in where you end up; you're just guaranteed 'a place' in FP)

No, not many jobs in medicine, and the pay isn't that good anymore.
