At Aston Medical School it’s our mission to train tomorrow’s doctors to meet the increasing demand for highly skilled medical practitioners. We strive to promote social mobility and inclusivity and our university has a long tradition of focusing on the welfare and achievements of students while delivering high quality research-based teaching.
Our 5 year MBChB course has been designed to equip you with the clinical expertise needed to embark on your foundation doctor years, while encouraging you to develop the caring and compassionate attitude required for developing into a safe practitioner. You will form part of a small cohort within a close-knit community where you will establish friendships, professional networks and be supported by a team of highly skilled academic staff.
In addition to enabling you to achieve the ‘outcomes for graduates’ prescribed by the General Medical Council, our MBChB is the first in the UK to offer the opportunity to enhance your leadership capabilities through a certificate in Health Leadership which is completed in conjunction with the triple accredited Aston Business School. You will Experience early patient contact in year one with general practice placements and then increasing involvement in patient care through apprenticeship learning, across a variety of hospital, community and general practice settings and clinical specialities.
For 2019 entry we will offer 100 places for UK/EU applicants. In addition we will continue to offer places to international fee-paying students.
In keeping with our vision of being a socially inclusive medical school, we aim to offer a minimum of 40% of our UK/EU places to students who meet specified widening participation criteria; preference will be given to our local students including those who are on the Sir Doug Ellis Pathway to Healthcare Programme. Full details of widening participation criteria will be announced on our website soon.
