This course will provide you with the requisite skills to pursue a career in Medicine or a related healthcare discipline, and will provide you with a range of transferrable skills, allowing you to develop as a reflective practitioner in the ever changing world of healthcare. You will gain a great deal of underpinning knowledge, but will also develop an appreciation of clinical skills and disease processes during your studies. At the end, you may wish to further your career aspirations, by applying to a post-graduate entry Medicine course, or you may wish to become a Physicians Associate.

?Be a young carer
?Be estranged from parents or guardians

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

Courses like this are more usually taken at postgraduate level - very few students take one of these degrees as a first degree. There isn't a great deal of reliable information on the employment prospects for these graduates so bear that in mind when you review the stats. Students tend to go on to further study or pursue jobs within the healthcare sector, but it might be a good idea to go on open days and talk to tutors about what previous graduates from your chosen subject went on to do.
