**What to expect in your Foundation Year:**
During your Foundation Year you'll gain the academic skills and knowledge you need to progress to our five-year medical degree, and you'll feel like a medical student from day one. As well as focusing on sciences and study skills, you'll start developing your medical and clinical skills with dedicated healthcare modules delivered by Norwich Medical School.
**Our MB BS Medicine degree programme:**
Upon successful completion of the Foundation Year, you'll continue onto our five-year MB BS Medicine degree programme, which is organised into modules based on body systems. We aim to produce fully-rounded medical graduates, so you'll study the underpinning biological, social and clinical sciences of medicine, and then put theory into practice while on placements in hospitals and general practices.
Working in small groups, you'll use problem-based learning (PBL) techniques to apply your learning to virtual scenarios and real patients. And you'll undertake dissections on specimens and models to truly understand the structure and function of the human body. This is a practical, hands-on way to hone your knowledge and approach to medicine, allowing you to develop the relevant practical and communication skills in both simulated and real healthcare environments.
Your learning will be supported by a weekly programme of lectures and seminars, and complemented by month-long attachments in secondary care hospitals, some of which may be residential.
