    Hi! I heard that some Cambridge colleges are more focused on clinical training and some on science. Can you tell me which ones are more focused on clinical training? Thanks!

    To my knowledge there is no significant difference. Lectures, practicals and clinical placements would all be organised by the central department so would be the same for all colleges. Its possible that the supervisions might have slightly different focuses but its not going to make a substantial difference - at the end of the day Cambridge is a science-heavy course with minimal clinical contact for the first 3 years. If that is not what you want you should reconsider applying there.

    Going to an open day and talking to current students would be the best bet in finding out more.

    The course is the same at all of them. All the lectures and practicals are done centrally, as is clinical experience later in the course. Supervisions are organised in college but all supervisors have to cover the same topics. Any bias towards clinical/research is very minor.
