Warwick Medical School’s accelerated graduate-entry MB ChB programme is the largest graduate-entry course in the UK and is challenging but extremely rewarding programme. It’s designed to help students become highly competent, compassionate and strongly motivated doctors. The course has an intake of 193 graduates each year (from 2018 entry).
The curriculum is divided into three phases: Phase I covers the scientific basis of medicine and is a year in length; Phase II introduces more complex cases in both primary and secondary care settings and enables students to learn about the expectations of patients and carers in a range of settings; Phase III sees students undertake their elective and further develop their knowledge through a series of specialist blocks.
The course is taught by staff at the forefront of their subjects at the University of Warwick and regional hospitals. Warwick offer innovative new facilities for teaching anatomy and clinical skills based at University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust.
By the time you graduate, you will have developed the knowledge and key personal skills and attitudes necessary to pursue a successful professional career as a doctor.
