Course description

Preparation for your career should be one of the 1st things you think about as you start university. Whether you have a clear idea of where your future aspirations lie or you want to consider the broad range of opportunities available once you have a Birmingham degree, our Careers Network can help you to achieve your goal. When you have graduated with your MBChB and completed your 2 foundation years, youâ??ll be in a position to apply for posts in your own chosen specialisation. For most of our graduates, these are hospital and primary care posts in the NHS, but there are also opportunities in laboratory-based disciplines such as pathology, or in research. Some doctors move into more commercial fields such as the pharmaceutical industry, politics, or medical journalism and the media. Whichever direction you choose to go in, your training here gives you a 1st-class springboard. Another advantage you will have as a Birmingham student is access to our unique careers guidance service where, if you make the most of the wide range of services, we will be able to help you develop your career from the moment you arrive.

And because all students studying at Birmingham become automatic members of the Guild of Students you'll have many chances to develop skills outside of study, have fun, and meet like-minded people.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
Good news! Medical degrees have, and will no doubt continue to have, some of the best employment outcomes of any qualification in terms of salary expectations and long-term prospects. Unsurprisingly, almost all graduates go into jobs within the health sector. If you're taking a shorter pre-clinical course, you'll need to continue on to further medical training to complete an accredited qualification, which explains why a high proportion of those grads are 'in further study' six months later.
