At BSMS, we combine proven, traditional methods with the latest innovations in teaching and research. There are few medical schools quite like us. We believe in an integrated, practical approach to studying medicine, with early patient contact in GP surgeries and hospitals. Anatomy is taught by full cadaveric dissection, allowing you to turn theory into reality. General practice is at the heart of our curriculum, and our research-active tutors weave the latest insights into everything you learn. Our standards are high but our approach is friendly. We are small enough for you to know everyone on your course and each tutor by name. The door is always open; you are part of a team.
