Clinical medicine

The Graduate & Professional Entry Programme enables honours-degree biomedical/life science graduates and healthcare professionals with equivalent academic qualifications to study for a fast-track degree in medicine. The programme design enables you to by-pass the first stage of a conventional medical degree to achieve qualification in four rather than five years (assuming the intercalated BSc year is opted out).The MBBS programme at Kings aims to train students to become:Critical scientific thinkers.Collaborative leaders and innovators.Outstanding patient-centred clinicians.Excellent team-players.Educators and life-long learners.Resilient and adaptable professionals.The MBBS curriculum is divided into three Stages with an opt-out intercalation year between stages 2 and 3.Although we offer four entry routes into Medicine, all our students follow the same core MBBS curriculumThe Medicine Graduate & Professional Entry (GPEP) is our four-year fast-track entry route into medicine for science graduates and health professionals. We have been running this programme since 2004, and our GPEP has quickly become one of the most popular routes of its kind in the UK.From the start of your programme you will be introduced to patients and clinicians. You will also work with other students destined for healthcare professions such as dentistry, nursing and midwifery. Inter-professional Education and team-based learning are an integral part of the programme, developing your teamwork, communication, and an awareness of your ethical and professional responsibilities.As a graduate with professional experience you will by-pass the first stage of our conventional medicine degree and join us in the second stage. From this point you will follow the same programme as all our other medical students:Stage 2 brings together science and clinical practice in blocks organised around the human life-cycle and common pathological processes. It focuses on the care of patients with common conditions in a range of clinical settings. You will also follow patients for prolonged periods of time to learn how to deliver whole-person care. This stage is underpinned by study in biomedical and population sciences.Stage 3 is oriented towards future practice, and includes the opportunity to undertake elective study abroad. You will also conduct quality improvement projects and develop skills to transform patient and population health at home and abroad. Inter-professional training and increasingly realistic simulation are important parts of the curriculum.Outcome of the programmeOn successful completion of the course you will receive your MBBS (or equivalent) degree, which is a primary medical qualification (PMQ). Holding a PMQ entitles you to apply for provisional registration with the General Medical Council (GMC), subject only to its acceptance that there are no Fitness to Practise concerns that need consideration. Provisional registration is time limited to a maximum of three years and 30 days (1125 days in total). After this time period your provisional registration will normally expire.Provisionally registered doctors can only practise in approved Foundation Year 1 posts. To obtain a Foundation Year 1 post you will need to apply during the final year of your undergraduate programme through the UK Foundation Programme Office selection scheme, which allocates these posts to graduates on a competitive basis. Generally all suitably qualified UK graduates have found a place on the Foundation Year 1 programme.Although this information is currently correct, you should be aware that regulations in this area may change from time to time.
