Subject

Medicine

Our challenging curriculum combines thorough training in the medical sciences with a strong emphasis on communication and practical skills. You’ll continually build and reinforce core professional skills, throughout the programme.

Clinical experience at Leeds is second to none. You’ll have early patient contact and then build your experience. The diversity of the region and our strong partnerships with the major Leeds teaching hospitals, local acute and regional general hospitals and general practice mean we offer a wide range of placements.

We’re a recognised leader in patient and carer involvement. Our Patient Carer Community contributes to teaching, learning and assessment, giving our students invaluable insight into the experience of people with a medical condition or disability, and their carers. We are also top 10 in the UK for our research power.

We’re national leaders in mobile learning and staff and students have created several successful apps.

**Additional course information**
As well as the wide-ranging curriculum, there’s also chance to tailor your studies through:

Intercalation – taking an extra degree in one year, usually after year 2, 3 or 4 of the MBChB. It’s a chance to broaden your knowledge and enhance your career opportunities. Nearly half of our year 3 undergraduate medical students choose to intercalate each year.

6-week elective – between years 4 and 5, this can allow you to gain wider clinical experience or carry out a particular project in the UK or abroad. This elective is about gaining wider clinical experience or carrying out a specific project. Past students have worked in health centres, charities, universities and hospitals in Australia, Samoa, Vanuatu, China, Italy, Nepal and Tanzania.
