    Course Summary

    The University of Exeter’s Bachelor of Medicine / Bachelor of Surgery program is a five year course which is truly unique in its field. Students start garnering clinical experience from the very first month of attendance, and gain the benefit of the University of Exeter’s highly multi-professional approach. Students learn from and work alongside many different types of healthcare professionals, and so become prepared to work in nearly any healthcare market in the UK, Europe, or worldwide.

    This course focuses on medical practice across the whole community, not only hospitals. This gives new doctors critical social context for their careers, and encourages a deeper understanding of prevention and chronic illness – two very marketable specialties at the moment. The focus on multi-professional health care is highly sought after, and the demand for this kind of training is only expected to increase.

    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

    Years 1 and 2:

    Your first years would be spent at the university’s St Luke’s Campus, in Exeter. The curriculum is based on integrated systems, and is designed to give students a working knowledge of population health as well as those aspects of sociology, psychology and biomedical science which will apply to their future practices.

    Years 3 and 4:

    These years will be primarily clinical, based in a variety of locations across England’s Southwest. Different community and hospital placements will give you a broad understanding of patient needs, and will expose you to the maximum number of different clinical scenarios.

    Year 5:

    This year consists of several apprenticeship attachments to hospitals in Torbay, Barnstaple, Truro and Exeter, and possibly other locations. You will primarily be learning independently at this point, but there will also be several indicative presentations throughout the year.

    Intercalate Year (optional):

    If you are eligible to pursue an intercalate degree, you may study abroad to further specialise your experience, and enhance your career potential.

    Learning & Teaching

    This program is delivered in partnership with the NHS in Devon and Cornwall. It relies heavily on small group settings and thereby provides a very supportive learning environment. Students will be encouraged to challenge and empower themselves, and to exceed their own expectations. This is intended to better prepare students to work in multi-professional clinical teams in the NHS and elsewhere.

    Career Possiblities

    With a BMBS degree from the University of Exeter, many career doors will be open to you. As healthcare moves more and more away from hospital-based provision to community care provision, the kind of experience you gain in a program like this one becomes more and more marketable.

    In addition, you would benefit from individually tailored career advisory sessions and events throughout the course of your education.
