Our five-year Medicine (MBBS) course will equip you with essential knowledge, understanding, skills and attitudes required to practise medicine competently and professionally in a patient-centred, multidisciplinary environment. As a St George’s medical graduate you will begin your career equipped to thrive as a doctor, bringing scientific excellence to the bedside and reflecting our core values of patient safety, patient-centredness and professionalism. Our alumni go on to excel in a wide range of medical and surgical fields and many return to study as a postgraduate to develop their career further. The first two years provide a thorough understanding of clinical science as well as first-hand clinical experience through a range of placements, giving you an insight into the patient journey and the role of multidisciplinary teams. In year 3 (T year) you will begin your transition from clinical science to clinical practice. You will undertake three five-week clinical attachments (medicine, general practice and surgery) interspersed with problem-based learning and lectures. In year 4 (P year) you will rotate between 10-week clinical attachments in four blocks (Surgery & Surgical specialities; Medicine & Medical specialities; Paediatrics, Obstetrics & Gynaecology; and Neurology & Psychiatry). In your final year (F year) you will deepen your understanding of different areas of clinical practice through a series of assistantships where you shadow junior doctors to understand the role for which you are preparing. In this year, you can also arrange to undertake elective study anywhere in the world. At the end of the undergraduate course you will receive your MBBS degree. This is a primary medical qualification (PMQ), which entitles you to provisional registration with the General Medical Council, provided there are no concerns about your fitness to practise.
