From 2016, the Edinburgh MBChB will be a 6-year programme. The first 2 years are spent studying the scientific basis of medical practice, with some clinical exposure in year 2. The third year is a mandatory intercalated year, with an emphasis on clinical research. Years 4 and 5 focus on systems-based teaching, with clinical practice becoming a more prominent feature. Year 6 is dominated by an elective which is undertaken in one or several locations abroad. These opportunities, plus the chance to live in a historic and vibrant city, attract lots of applicants to Edinburgh for only around 200 places. The school also offers other biomedical and oral health science degrees.
6-year Integrated course, including PBL. Intercalation is mandatory in the third year.
