This programme is designed specifically for graduates with a 1st degree in a life science and is an excellent opportunity to develop the skills you need to become a medical practitioner. The Medicine and Surgery programme at Birmingham offers you the first-class opportunity to develop the practical, theoretical and communication skills needed to become a safe and effective practitioner. Right from the start, you’ll experience the practice of healthcare in the community with a fortnightly attachment to a general practice, allowing you to see how your studies translate into clinical practice. Based in one of the largest healthcare regions in the UK, with a diverse population of over 5 million, your opportunities for contact with a wide range of patients and a variety of health conditions are exceptional. Located next door to the Medical School is the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, which offer outstanding placement opportunities. This course is open to applicants who are classified as home/EU only.

Points of entry
The following entry points are available for this course:
- Year 1
We will consider, normally, those applicants who have completed a life science degree at the time of application. We will rank applicants according to the quality of their degree result, giving preference to those with a 1st class mark, but we expect also to consider those who have achieved a result at the upper end of the 2:1 range. Secondary school qualifications are used to discriminate between applicants. In particular, we expect very good results in Science, English and Mathematics. As a guide our A level threshold requirements are BBB, though these grades may be raised through competition. A sound knowledge base in Chemistry is essential, either from A levels or other pre-university examinations, or from the content of the degree programme. Where the highest qualification in English or Maths is at GCSE, grade A is normally required.
