In an exciting collaboration between the University of Lincoln and the University of Nottingham, the University of Lincoln offers a Medicine programme in Lincolnshire. This is a five-year course that consists of an integrated three-year Bachelor of Medical Sciences and then progresses towards the Bachelor of Medicine Bachelor of Surgery.
In year one, the scientific and professional basics of Medicine are developed. Themes centred on clinical problems, such as cardiovascular medicine and the musculoskeletal system will also be taught. Learning is also reinforced through hospital and GP visits too. In the spring term, students have the chance to study an optional module to look at particular topics in more depth.
Year two continues theme-based teaching, where other clinical issues, like the central nervous system, are looked at. Each semester will consist of one optional module too.
Year three begins with a supervised research project in a personal area of interest, as well as an accompanying Research Methods module to aid this project. Optional advanced medical science modules can also be undertaken, which will lead to students attaining their BMedSci.
In the final two years, students will enter the clinical phase, which involves rotation through a series of six-week placement at hospitals and primary care across the region. This is so students will gain the knowledge, skills and value needed to succeed through experience. In both years, students will have the opportunity to undertake student selected modules either at home or abroad. They will also have a six-week placement and a medical assistantship to aid preparation for the foundation programme.
