Subject

Clinical medicine

The MB ChB (Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery) degree is the primary medical qualification awarded by the University of Bristol and is recognised by the General Medical Council.

As a student on this course you will learn about the art, science and craft of medicine through:

- early clinical exposure in hospital, community and primary care settings;

- a blend of lectures, case-based learning and practical work;

- state-of-the-art anatomy facilities including cadaveric prosections;

- inter-professional working with students of nursing, pharmacy and physiotherapy;

- integration of basic science and clinical learning throughout the course;

- a substantial student choice programme to explore personal interests in more detail and to experience potential career options;

- completion of a research project of your choice;

- an exciting opportunity to study abroad as part of your final year elective;

- a final year that is constructed explicitly to prepare you for your first job as a foundation doctor.

**Health and conduct**
Certain health conditions may be incompatible with some careers in medicine. Further information can be found with our pre-course information, or you can contact our prospective student enquiries team.

We have excellent support services available including Disability Services, student health and student counselling provision.

Medical students must complete a health questionnaire and undergo a medical examination. Non-immune students must be immunised against hepatitis B and tuberculosis.

In accordance with General Medical Council guidelines, all medical students undergo a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check in line with other UK health-related courses.

**Age Requirement**

Students are required to be 18 years of age (or above) by 1 October in their year of entry in order to undertake the clinical experiential learning in our teaching (general) practices and clinical academies.
