The School of Medicine , Dentistry and Biomedical Sciences has close ties with the Northern Ireland community as part of its educational, research and outreach programmes. Our ‘Patients as Partners’ make a valuable contribution to the education of medical students, through their participation in the selection of medical students to the programme, teaching sessions, as well as assessments.
Students in the Medicine course at Queen's University Belfast are welcomed in all of the hospitals within the region and in over 150 general practices. Students comment on the ease of access to high quality clinical teaching.
As medical practice changes, so our course has changed to meet the challenges of 21st Century healthcare.
At the end of the undergraduate course you will receive your MB BCh BAO degree, which is a Primary Medical Qualification (PMQ). Holding a PMQ entitles you to apply for provisional registration with the GMC. Provisionally registered doctors can only practise in approved Foundation Year 1 posts: the law does not allow provisionally registered doctors to undertake any other type of work.
On successful completion of the first year of this training period you become a fully registered doctor; however, whichever branch of medicine you intend to pursue, you will be required to undertake further training. For example, to enter General Practice you will require a further three years‘ training. To become a hospital consultant you may require a further seven years of specialty training.

- Queen’s medical degree is a five year course. The curriculum is integrated and systems-based. It is one of the few medical schools in the UK to teach students anatomy through cadaveric full-body dissection and does so in a state-of-the-art modern Dissection Suite.
- Students are introduced to clinical work from the onset and by third year almost all teaching is in the clinical setting. Good communication and examination skills training is undertaken in the Clinical Skills Education Centre with our ‘Patients as Partners’ before students move to actual patient contact in the healthcare environment.
- Four 'Double-Helical Themes' weave their way into every module and year of the course. These themes - the DNA of the curriculum - are Global and Population Health, Clinical Science and Practice, Achieving Good Medical Practice and Teamwork for Safe Care.
