Cambridge School of Clinical Medicine excels in league tables, coming top in the Guardian’s medical school league table 2016. Cambridge has 3 pre-clinical years, after which you can, if you get a place, continue at Cambridge for 3 clinical years or complete them somewhere else (many go on to medical schools in London or Oxford). The pre-clinical years are rigorous with lots of lectures, practicals and small-group supervised sessions. In the third year, students study a chosen subject in more depth. This is usually one related to biological medicine but can be a research project or something unrelated to medicine.
6 years, Traditional structure with 3 pre-clinical and 3 clinical years. Lectures and supervisions continue during the clinical years.
