WHY MEDICINE AND HEALTH
Our Schools of Medicine and Allied Health are hubs for professional healthcare training based at both Buckingham and Crewe. We offer a range of Medicine and Health courses, from the MB ChB Medicine, Podiatric Medicine and Biomedical Science, to postgraduate courses for healthcare professionals.
Our unique 4.5-year, GMC-accredited medicine programme will develop you into a competent, safe and caring doctor, well equipped to progress in your chosen area. We introduce patient contact from as early as term one, giving you plenty of opportunities to interact and shadow leading practitioners. You will be taught both on-campus and at our clinical placements at nearby hospitals.
Our Medicine and Health courses are suited to both UK and international students. As an independent medical school, we have no cap on international student places.
We also offer a range of allied health programmes at our brand new Health Sciences campus in Crewe , based in Cheshire in North West England. Medicine will be offered in Crewe, as well as Buckingham, from January 2021
