We offer training in NHS clinical Academies across the South West to equip you with the clinical, communication and leadership skills for your future medical career.
Bristol is leading the way in developing innovative teaching tools for medical sciences, thanks to schemes created by the Applied and Integrated Medical Sciences Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning.
Our intercalated degrees give you the option to study for a BSc in an additional subject such as neuroscience, international health or a BA in medical humanities.
With the introduction of schemes such as our new Academic Mentorship, we are working hard to help you develop to your full potential.
What is it like to be a patient or doctor? Uniquely, we encourage students to explore the emotional and human side of medicine by producing creative work as part of their degree.
Our popular MB ChB programme is developed in partnership with the NHS, offering you real-life training in clinical Academies across the South West. The programme will equip you with the clinical, communication and leadership skills for your career as a medical practitioner.
Professor Peter Fleming is hailed as a UK
science pioneer thanks to the Back to Sleep
campaign, which advised parents on how to avoid
the risk of cot death. Up until two decades ago,
cot death claimed the lives of 2,000 babies in the
UK every year; that number has since been
reduced by 80 per cent.
