Course description

Modules

Stage 1: Students follow the same core medical science teaching as those on the standard Preâ??Clinical Course, for 4.5 terms, and take the 2nd MB exams; in addition, there are 5 clinical placements in West Suffolk (during the University vacations) through which students learn clinical method; 1.5 days a week are spent in General Practice and the other days in a hospital environment; this integration of clinical experience and the study of core science helps to demonstrate the relevance of the core science and its integration into clinical medicine; at the end of this period students complete their 2nd MB and have a level of clinical competence comparable to the standard Clinical Course students take at the end of their 1st clinical stage. Stage 2: Placements in the medical specialties; these may be at Addenbrooke's Hospital or other hospitals in the region, learning alongside the standard Clinical Course students. Stage 3: This is spent in clinical placements in West Suffolk, when skills and knowledge gained in the first 3 years are reinforced and developed in preparation for practice; the emphasis is on integration of primary care, secondary care and the specialties, with encouragement to follow the â??patient journeyâ??.

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.
