This course is a one-year foundation course designed to widen access to medicine. On successful completion you will automatically progress to the five-year BMBS Medicine course. This course is open to UK applicants only. If your home country is not the UK but you are living in the UK, you must have indefinite leave to remain in the UK at the time of your application, or have refugee status.
All the important elements of biology and chemistry required for your studies in years one to five are studied. In addition, you will cover key topics in health psychology, population health, professionalism and communication and have your learning set in clinical context where appropriate.
Study skills tuition supports the practical work you do, developing key skills in writing, information gathering, data analysis and examination success to name a few. Weâll also prepare you for a smooth transition to the five-year course via sessions with personal tutors and visits to the dissection suite.
At Nottingham you will learn anatomy through hands-on experience at one of the few universities in the UK to offer full-body dissection. You will also complete an integrated BMedSci degree and spend time working with scientists on a research project.
Clinical practice is an important element of your medical education. We work with NHS Trusts and general practices across Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire to help you gain excellent clinical experience. It is essential you gain clinical experience in a range of settings so you are prepared with the transferable skills needed for when you qualify. It is also advantageous to experience working in hospitals of different sizes and in different locations so that you have contact with varied patient populations.
While on the foundation year you will study all the important elements of biology and chemistry required to make a success of your medical studies in years one to five. You will then progress onto the five-year BMBS Medicine course. This is conducted as follows; in the first two years, the scientific basis of medicine is taught in a clinical context covering, molecular/cellular aspects of medicine, physiology and anatomy, healthcare in the community and clinical and professional development. In the third year you will undertake a supervised research project of your choice, leading to the award of a BMedSci. Following this you will move into the clinical phases where you will rotate through a series of placements at major teaching trusts.
