Medicine Hull York Medical School

The course at HYMS has several notable features that are designed to make learning relevant, supportive and fun:

Clinical placements from the start of the course, in a wide variety of different settings.
A blended learning approach, with clinician-led problem-based learning supported by lectures, clinical placements and Scholarship and Special Interest Programmes (SSIPs).
Teaching in small groups, led by clinicians, throughout the course.
Close student support from peers, educational facilitators and clinical learning tutors.
Uniquely, a balance of teaching across all parts of the health service. A large share of our clinical learning is in primary care, fully supported and integrated with learning centres across a range of hospital sites.
Clinical rotations across a diverse range of settings.

Within your course, you'll be given opportunities to select options so you can experience a broad range of learning activities — including, if you choose, working and studying in an international setting. We are small, friendly, and much loved by our students. Come and join us!
