Course Summary:
At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We’re proud to be ‘University of the Year for Student Experience’ 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 it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too. The course will provide you with the requisite science knowledge, enhance your study skills and give you an introduction to the employability skills required by health professionals. The Health Foundation Year is a well established and successful course which offers progression onto the full range of health degrees at Keele. In 2020 we shall be offering an exciting new gateway route into medicine for students from some under-represented groups. This course offers standard medical training with the addition of a foundation year (a total of six years). Students entering the Health Foundation Year will undertake a range of modules and at the end of the foundation year will need to achieve 70% or above in all these modules in order to progress to the five-year MBChB programme. By the end of this course you will have transformed your skills and knowledge to equip you to practise in the evolving healthcare environment. You’ll 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 ‘Outcomes for Graduates’. 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. You’ll 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 Bachelor’s level after second year or Master’s level after fourth year. You can focus on scholarship and research, publish scientific papers and present at conferences.
