Our Medicine degree produces capable and confident Foundation doctors who are prepared for their role. Our graduates are equipped with the skills for lifelong learning and continue to develop in their professional careers. The importance of being able to work as a member of a multi-professional team, to know when to lead and when to follow, is designed into the programme. You will learn with, from and about other healthcare professionals to ensure that patients benefit from the best possible care.

We will work closely with you throughout your studies to ensure that you are properly advised about career development and that your learning experiences enable you to be competitive in any medical employment market you wish to work. The degree programme is carefully structured so that you will graduate with the knowledge, skills and attitudes required for safe practice and entry into your first clinical job.
