    Course Summary

    Newcastle University’s Medicine and Surgery MB BS degree program is very focused on the clinical aspect of medicine. In addition to the knowledge of surgery and medicine you’ll gather throughout this program, you’ll learn about professional standards and behaviour as well as the core elements of clinical competence.

    You’ll gain clinical experience early, and in many different settings. You’ll meet with patients in a professional capacity in hospitals and GP’s surgeries. You’ll also work in NU’s dedicated Clinical Skills Laboratory facility.

    Early in the program you’ll focus mainly on medical sciences, professionalism, ethics and clinical skills. Later you’ll amass a great deal of actual working experience at various Northern Region NHS care facilities.

    This degree program is fully accredited by the GMC (General Medical Council), and allows you to pursue a career in medicine with the standard additional training.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

    Course Outline

    This course is delivered over 5 years.

    Years 1 and 2:

    Your first years will see you studying several cases which will help you integrate your scientific knowledge and communication skills with your professional, decision-making and clinical skills. In addition to modules designed to give you the scientific underpinning of a modern medical degree, you’ll spend a great deal of time in self-directed learning. You are also encouraged to pursue opportunities for clinical experience from your very first weeks in the program.

    Year 3:

    Year 3 focuses on integrated medical practice and includes several integrated placements such as Women’s Health, Mental Health, Medicine, Surgery and Community, and Child/Adolescent Health.

    Year 4:

    Year 4 will see you taking several elective modules which will form your chosen specialty. In addition, you’ll study Clinical Decision Making, Long Term Conditions and Medicine & Surgery.

    Year 5:

    Your last year will see you gaining much more clinical experience as you prepare for the Foundation Programme.

    Learning & Teaching

    Newcastle University uses many different learning and teaching methods. These involve highly integrated case-led teaching and a great deal of early clinical experience. For example, you’ll begin gaining clinical skills in week 2 in the Clinical Skills Laboratory.

    Career Possiblities

    Whilst the pathway for graduates to professional recognition as doctors is currently under review, the process as it stands allows graduates of this program to apply for provisional registration with the GMC immediately. You’d them spend one year working as an F1 Doctor, and complete the Foundation Programme over 2 years. At that point, you should be eligible for full registration.
