At Keele University, weâre different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. Weâre proud to be âUniversity of the Year for Student Experienceâ in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017, in addition to having been ranked No.1 in the National Student Survey 2014-2016. This is because itâs more than green and lovely, itâs a place of research and academic excellence too.
By the end of this course you will have transformed your skills and knowledge to equip you to practise in the evolving healthcare environment. Youâll gain a deep
understanding of the scientific foundations of medicine, enabling you to develop high levels of clinical expertise.
The course is designed to ensure you meet the necessary standards in terms of knowledge, skills and attitudes that new doctors need, as identified by the General Medical Council in âOutcomes for Graduatesâ. At Keele, we put an emphasis on feedback to help you improve your knowledge, understanding and performance of medical practice. The modern, highly-integrated medical curriculum combines a range of learning strategies, including contemporary science, early clinical experience, integrated communication and clinical skills teaching, practical sessions, including dissection, problem-based-learning
(PBL), lectures and seminars. You will gain experience through clinical placements in primary and secondary care settings and in the community sector.
Inter-professional learning and student interests are fostered throughout this programme.
Youâll get the opportunity for intercalation to pursue an additional qualification in a medicine-related subject that interests you in further depth. You could study at Bachelorâs level after second year or Masterâs level after fourth year. You can focus on scholarship and research, publish scientific papers and present at conferences.
Completion of the MBChB course, a primary medical qualification (PMQ), entitles you to apply for provisional registration with the General Medical Council (GMC), subject to Fitness to Practise considerations. Provisionally registered doctors can only practise in approved Foundation Year 1 posts, obtained through the national application process during the final year of the course. Normally, all suitably qualified UK graduates secure a place but this cannot be guaranteed.
Successful completion of the programme is normally achieved within 12 months and awards a Certificate of Experience. You can then apply for full registration with the General Medical Council. You need this and a licence to practise unsupervised medical practice in the UK for both NHS and private practice.
Overseas Medical students studying in the UK who do not have right of residence must check how the latest visa requirements affects their postgraduate training period.
