Patient contact in clinical settings is a feature from the first week of the course. The first two years focus on scientific understanding of the physiological systems of the body, and the third year is based around in-depth research work. Fourth and fifth years are dedicated to clinical placements in Southampton and the south of England. Southampton emphasises multi-professional learning by getting second year students to undertake a clinical placement as a Healthcare Assistant (a varied role working alongside nurses and doctors). The medical school is paired with a German health provider, so there are options to complete some studies in Germany.
5 year, Integrated and systems-based with the option to intercalate between the third and fourth year (although places are limited).
