About The Course

Warwick’s challenging but rewarding graduate-entry MBChB programme is designed to shape students into becoming highly competent, strongly motivated doctors.

This four-year course is taught by academics who are at the forefront of their subjects both at the University of Warwick as well as regional hospitals, meaning students are guaranteed to develop the knowledge and attributes needed to be a doctor.

The course is divided into three phases. Phase one covers the fundamental basis of Medicine, phase two introduces students into complex cases in both primary and secondary clinical settings. This will enable students to get to grips with the expectations of patients and carers in various settings. In phase threes students will undertake electives and deepen their knowledge through specialist blocks. There is also a clinical placement and a community placement that students undergo too.

In year one, students can expect teaching to be largely university-based, with integrated clinical exposure arising in several different settings. Small learning groups consisting of around ten students will mean students bring their different skills and knowledge so everyone learns from one another. Students remain in their allocated group for the duration of the first year. Learning is organised into five blocks of five weeks. Each block will require students to develop understanding, skills and attitudes needed to work with patients and teammates in clinical settings.

Year two will see students begin with a similar learning set up as year one. There will be an increase in the time spent learning in a healthcare setting too, by the middle of the academic year students will be immersed in hospital and community based clinical teaching.

In year three and four, the majority of learning will continue to be based in hospital and community settings, with specialist clinical placements taking place specifically in year three. There are eight specialities that are covered, some including: psychiatry, acute medicine and child health.

In year four there is opportunity for students to undertake an assistantship, students will become part of a clinical team and be in charge of carrying specified duties under supervision. This is to help prepare for practice as a FY1 doctor.
