Sheffield operates an Integrated learning and teaching approach that links clinical medicine to underlying medical sciences. Clinical problem-solving in teams is the focus, with lectures, seminars, tutorials and hands-on work such as dissection also playing a part.
There are five teaching hospitals in and around Sheffield, and the medical school itself has recently undergone a £5 million refurbishment. The school accepts around 237 students onto its medical course each year, but it also offers a 3-year BMedSci in Orthoptics, and a Dentistry degree.
The medical course at Sheffield aims:
- To equip students with the essential personal and professional skills required throughout the rest of their course and in their future careers
- To integrate the basic and clinical sciences throughout the course
- To cultivate in students an attitude of curiosity and a desire for intellectual exploration and critical evaluation
