Birmingham Medical School’s MBChB course will teach you the practical, theoretical and communication skills needed to become a safe, compassionate and ethical doctor of the future. You will develop the practical, theoretical and communication skills needed to become a safe and effective practitioner by learning from passionate researchers, academics and clinicians in world-class settings, with a focus on hand-on, apprentice-style experience. 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. You’ll learn alongside other health professions for the most comprehensive, real life, learning experience and have the unique opportunity to see a vast range of illness, learning from a diverse population of over five million people. Birmingham is also home to some of the UK's leading hospitals, including the Queen Elizabeth Hospital right next door.
