Medicine BMBS (Graduate Entry) University of Nottingham


Join our experienced Medical School that offers innovative teaching and early interaction with patients.

The University of Nottingham Graduate Entry Medicine programme is delivered by an enthusiastic and multi-disciplinary team of clinical academics and basic scientists. The pre-clinical phase of the programme is delivered in partnership with Derby Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, and is based in a purpose-built medical school on the Royal Derby Hospital site. The programme utilises problem based learning and other interactive teaching methods to enable students to apply their understanding of basic and clinical sciences to a variety of clinical cases.

Clinical practice is an important element of your medical education. We work with NHS Trusts and general practices across Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire to help you gain excellent general practice and clinical experience. It is essential you gain clinical experience in a range of settings so you gain the transferable skills required of a junior doctor. It is also advantageous to experience working in hospitals of different sizes and in different locations so that you have contact with different populations of patients.

Our world-leading research ranges from basic and translational science through to clinical trials, epidemiology, and health services research. The School’s over-arching aim is to improve patient care and human health.

Many of our academics are clinicians, using their expertise to provide cutting edge specialised treatment to NHS patients, reflecting that patients are at the heart of all we do.
