Year 1

In the first two years, you’ll learn the core scientific foundations of medicine within a clinical context. We’ve structured our curriculum around the human life cycle, so in the first year you’ll study human physical and psychological development from conception to old age. You’ll learn from real-life clinical case studies and experience healthcare in a range of community settings, meeting patients and service users, and learning from health and social care professionals.

Core modules

  • MED410 Medical Knowledge 1
  • MED411 Clinical and Communication Skills 1
  • MED412 Personal Development and Professionalism 1
  • MED414 Student-Selected Component 1 (SSC1)

Year 2

In the second year, you’ll revisit the human life cycle, this time with an emphasis on disease, pathological processes, and the human and social impact of illness and disease. You’ll do a series of placements in a single general practice, enabling you to learn about long-term health issues and see teamwork in action.

Core modules

  • MED520 Medical Knowledge 2
  • MED521 Clinical and Communication Skills 2
  • MED522 Personal Development and Professionalism 2
  • MED524 Student-Selected Component 2 (SSC2)

Year 3

In your third and fourth years, you’ll learn more about clinical practice and spend more time in a patient-centred learning environment. Completing a series of hospital and general practice-based community placements, you’ll gain valuable experience in a wide range of clinical settings and see first hand how the NHS works as a team to deliver patient care. Year three focuses on three ‘Pathways of Care’: Acute Care, Ward Care and Integrated Ambulatory Care.

Core modules

  • MED630edical Knowledge 3
  • MED631 Clinical and Professional Development 1

Core modules

  • MED640 Medical Knowledge 4

Final year

You’ll now be all set to apply the knowledge, skills and confidence you’ve acquired over the first four years by working ‘on the job’, as part of a healthcare team in action, based in either Derriford or Torbay hospital. You’ll become more assured when dealing with clinical situations, and develop an in-depth understanding of the principles of practice in the NHS. Supplementing your independent learning with a portfolio of indicative presentations, you’ll also have the opportunity to do an elective in a different social or cultural context.

Core modules

  • MED650 Medical Knowledge 5
  • MED651 Clinical and Professional Practice
  • MED654 Student Selected Component 5
