Overview

Overview

We draw on our long experience to provide the best in modern medical training, with high-tech teaching facilities, and aim to prepare you for life as a qualified doctor.

Our Medicine - Graduate Entry Programme offered at Queen Mary University of London will equip you with clinical, communication, observation, teamwork and management skills. The curriculum is underpinned by research, linking your learning to the work of the faculty, from the laboratory bench to new drugs to public health interventions.

With less emphasis on traditional lectures, problem-based learning in small groups encourages you to take an independent approach to clinical scenarios. You’ll start seeing patients from your very first term, and progress to hospital and community placements.

You can follow your own interests by choosing student-selected components, from basic sciences to clinical specialities, community and public health, medical ethics and law. 

Careers

Most graduates work as doctors within the NHS, following training programmes in general practice or hospital medicine. Some of our overseas students return home to work.

A small number defer starting work as a doctor to pursue a specialist postgraduate degree.

Teaching and Learning:

You’ll take eight modules in your first year. Six modules are based on body systems, which in turn encompass various scientific and medical themes. The remaining two modules cover human sciences and public health.

You’ll also practise dissection in the anatomy lab.

We introduce the basic biological sciences and address key topics, including:

  • normal biological structure and function of cells, organs and body systems
  • the effect of illness on people and their families
  • the impact of environmental and social factors on health.
