Course summary

Gain eligibility to apply for provisional registration as a doctor with the General Medical Council, with the skills, knowledge and clinical practice experience needed to diagnose and manage patients effectively. This five-year programme enables you to gain a Primary Medical Qualification and to apply for provisional registration with the General Medical Council. With a focus on developing future doctors who have patient safety, reflection and professionalism at the core of their practice, the MBChB involves early and extensive clinical placements with a focus on community and mental healthcare settings, as well as exposure to medicine, surgery and a range of hospital specialities. Theory and practice are integrated through a hybrid of case-based and team-based learning alongside extensive clinical skills and simulation training. Equipped with medical leadership skills, resilience and an understanding of public health, you will graduate fully prepared for practice as a doctor and ready to make a major contribution to the healthcare services of today and tomorrow. In common with all new UK medical schools, Edge Hill University Medical School is subject to successful progress through the GMC’s rigorous quality assurance processes. We have successfully completed several stages of this process and will now be subject to ongoing review. The final-stage assessment and approval for the award of a UK medical degree is at the end of the first complete delivery of the course. The University of Liverpool will act as our contingency school during this time.

Assessment method

The assessment methods on this programme include research projects and written assignments, objective structured clinical examinations (OSCEs), and written examinations. Your skills and professionalism will also be assessed on clinical placements and via a portfolio. The General Medical Council are introducing a national Medical Licensing Assessment in 2024. This will include a written test and a clinical and professional skills assessment. Medicine students graduating from academic year 2024/25 onwards will need to pass the Medical Licensing Assessment to gain the MBChB award and secure eligibility to apply to the General Medical Council for provisional registration.

Entry requirements

Qualification requirements

All A Level qualifications, or accepted equivalents, must have been obtained within the two years prior to application. Applicants will be required to take the UCAT Medical Admissions Test prior to application. UCAT scores and Multiple Mini Interviews (MMIs) form part of the selection process. UCAT scores can only be used to support an application if they were achieved in the relevant admissions cycle prior to your intended year of entry. If you meet a specific set of widening participation criteria and grades, you may be able to join a six-year integrated version of this programme, MBChB Medicine with Foundation Year, where you will complete a Foundation Year before progressing onto the MBChB Medicine degree. Alternatively, if you have already completed a degree, MBChB applications will be considered from graduates with a 2:1 or above who have studied a science related programme, including Psychology, which has been awarded in the two years prior to application. If you graduated prior to this but have undertaken postgraduate study in the past two years, you are also encouraged to apply. Graduates must have grades ABB at A Level which must include Biology and Chemistry, at least one of which must be at Grade A or above with the other at minimum Grade B, as well as one other subject. A Levels in General Studies, Critical Reasoning, Citizenship and Key Skills will not be accepted. Graduate applicants must also meet the GCSE requirements outlined in the standard entry criteria above. There is no graduate entry point onto the MBChB. Graduates will therefore be required to undertake the full programme. We will also consider applications from students who are in the early stages of another non-medical degree who wish to withdraw and/or have not completed a previous non-medical degree, as long as our standard MBChB entry criteria are met. No recognition of prior learning (RPL) will be considered on this basis. We will not accept applications from students who wish to transfer from other medical programmes or who have previously started a medical degree but failed to progress on this.
