MD in General Internal Medicine (Clinical)
The University of Buckingham offers two routes to the award of an MD in General Internal Medicine:
- A 2-year structured MD in General Internal Medicine (Clinical)
- A one-year MSc in Clinical Science, followed by a 2-year structured Clinical MD
The MD programme launched in May 2008, and is open to physicians who have completed a one-year compulsory internship. The MSc option is for those doctors who want formal research experience in a laboratory environment in addition to clinical training
University of Buckingham School of Medicine is a GMC approved sponsor for full registration with the GMC. The University will start sponsoring selected candidates on the MD programmes for full registration in the near future. Such candidates will be granted full registration by the GMC at the end of first 3 months of their MD programme, enhancing the clinical experience during the remaining MD training. Providing candidates’ performance during the MD training remains satisfactory, GMC registration will remain valid after the successful completion of the MD programme.
