Medicine at University of Sheffield - UCAS

Course summary

Our Medicine MBChB course is designed to educate and train you to become an excellent doctor. Over the five-year programme, you can gain the clinical abilities, knowledge, attitudes and professional behaviours you will need to thrive in medicine. Diverse clinical placements You’ll gain hands-on experience from the start, with clinical teaching in GP practices, hospital wards and clinics, alongside lectures, seminars, tutorials and practical classes. In addition, you’ll use our Clinical Skills Centre at Northern General Hospital – one of the largest in the country – to practise your learning in simulated wards, resuscitation suites and theatres. Learn from patients Being a great clinician doesn’t just mean knowing the hard facts or the latest techniques - you need to be able to speak, listen and empathise with patients. That’s why you’ll be taught the social aspects of medicine and spend time learning from real patients with real illnesses. Studying this way means you’ll be able to reflect on your clinical knowledge in the context of real people with their own unique perspectives and respond to problems in a range of primary, secondary and tertiary care settings. Research-informed practice Studying Medicine in Sheffield means joining a community where curiosity and innovation are celebrated. Our team is known for conducting world-leading research with tangible, life-changing applications – from developing new techniques for diagnosing heart failure to trialling new cancer treatments. Studying with us means you’ll always be able to draw on the latest research and make informed, evidence-based choices in your own medical practice. Prepared for the future Once you complete your degree, you’ll leave Sheffield with a passion for medicine and the confidence and competence you need to succeed as a junior doctor. You will graduate with an MBChB, which is classed as a primary medical qualification (PMQ) by the General Medical Council (GMC). Assuming you meet their Fitness to Practise guidelines, you can then provisionally register with the GMC and apply for a Foundation Year 1 post.
