Graduate Entry Medicine at University of Sheffield - UCAS

Course summary

If you have a life sciences degree and come from a widening participation background, this Medicine MBChB is an opportunity for you to fast-track your career in medicine. You’ll join a supportive Medical School known for innovative, clinically-led, patient-centred teaching. If you meet our widening participation entry requirements, you’ll join your fellow medical students in phase 2 of the MBChB programme after a six-week introductory module. You’ll graduate in four years rather than five, ready to start making a difference as a junior doctor. 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. You will also 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. This course is only open to home/UK students from widening participation backgrounds. There are no places available on this degree for international students.
