By studying for a Medical Degree at the UEA you will bring about huge change in your life and in the lives of many other people. Being a doctor is a privileged position which has at its heart a real and deep-seated vocation to help people.

It’s a demanding, challenging, but very rewarding profession – and not one to be entered into lightly. You will have a long-held ambition to become a doctor and it is this ambition that will motivate and sustain you through the years of academic and clinical study you’ll complete before you can take your place as a competent physician.

Alongside excellent clinical skills, modern doctors must be able to communicate effectively so they can relate to patients and their loved ones with compassion and understanding. You will also be working within multi disciplinary teams – so a co-operative and approachable attitude are key to your success.

The career choices for a doctor are endless. But wherever you choose work, as a GP, in a hospital, or in research, the patient will always be at the core of what you do.

Medical degrees at the UEA – bringing real change

When you study for Medicine degree at UEA you will be thoroughly prepared to take your place as a highly motivated and competent doctor in the modern health service, with the mind-set to continue to learn throughout your career. The five-year course has been very carefully designed with the General Medical Council and you will learn and work with expert clinicians in a range of disciplines in facilities that are the envy of other schools.

Right from the start of the course a significant portion of your study will be through scenarios and real clinical problems from real patients. You will solve these problems through group and individual work and learn how to apply acquired medical knowledge to practical situations. This is the essence of Problem Based Learning (PBL) which is fundamental to the course.

Other key dynamics of the course include learning how research underpins innovation in medicine, and developing your communication skills. We offer superb facilities and we are especially proud of the support we give our students at every stage of their studies.

UEA is a fantastic place to study, placed in the top ten universities in the UK for student satisfaction since the survey began. You will love being here, learning and making lasting friendships. By taking a Medical degree at the UEA you are guaranteed the best start in a highly valued, respected and worthwhile vocation.

Outcome of the course

At the end of the undergraduate course you will receive your MB BS degree, which is a primary medical qualification (PMQ). Holding a PMQ entitles you to provisional registration with the General Medical Council, subject only to its acceptance that there are no Fitness to Practise concerns that need consideration. 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.

To obtain a Foundation Year 1 post you will need to apply during the final year of your undergraduate course through the UK Foundation Programme Office selection scheme, which allocates these posts to graduates on a competitive basis. So far, all suitably qualified UK graduates have found a place on the Foundation Year 1 programme, but this cannot be guaranteed, for instance if there were to be an increased number of competitive applications from non-UK graduates.

Successful completion of the Foundation Year 1 programme is normally achieved within 12 months and is marked by the award of a Certificate of Experience. You will then be eligible to apply for full registration with the General Medical Council. You need full registration with a licence to practise for unsupervised medical practice in the NHS or private practice in the UK.

Although this information is currently correct, students need to be aware that regulations in this area may change from time to time.
