Overview

Hard work, very rewarding

Success in medicine requires application and hard work, both while studying and when in practice. However, it brings great rewards in terms of job satisfaction, involving as it does a combination of science and human interactions, and numerous career opportunities. The environment in which different types of medicine are practised is rich and varied, and continually changing, requiring doctors to continue to learn throughout their working lives.

Our medicine courses provide the education and training required to be one of tomorrow's doctors, reflecting the latest advances in medical sciences and practice.

Graduates are entitled to hold provisional registration with the General Medical Council (GMC) with a license to practise, subject to demonstrating to the GMC that they are fit to practise. To achieve full registration as a doctor, you must complete a two-year period of satisfactory service in a Foundation Programme post and continue to meet fitness to practise requirements.

Courses available

  • If you do not already have a degree, you can apply for the standard Medicine (A100) course.
  • As a graduate wishing to study Medicine you have several options:
    • you can apply as an affiliated student (taking the Pre-Clinical component of the Medicine (A100) course in two years instead of the usual three) to Lucy Cavendish, St Edmund's or Wolfson Colleges
    • you can apply to the accelerated Graduate Course in Medicine (A101) to Hughes Hall, Lucy Cavendish College or Wolfson College
  • You can apply for both the standard Medicine course (A100) and the Graduate Course in Medicine (A101). However, if you choose to do so you must apply to the same College for both courses (ie Lucy Cavendish or Wolfson)

NHS Bursaries

NHS Bursaries are available for eligible Medicine students from Year 5 of the Standard Course (A100), or from Year 2 of the Graduate Course (A101). See the NHS Student Bursaries website for further information.

Careers

Most UK graduates go on to work in the NHS, and about half become general practitioners, providing comprehensive healthcare for the local community. There is a broad spectrum of hospital-based careers across medical, surgical and other specialisms, but healthcare is moving towards a more community-centred model of delivery, and consequently doctors are increasingly expected to deliver healthcare in a range of settings.

The MB PhD programme

Designed for Standard Course (A100) medical students who are planning a career in academic medicine, the MB/PhD Programme intercalates three years of research with the three years of Clinical Studies in Cambridge. This enables them to gain the MB, BChir and a PhD in six years. Weekly supervisions continue throughout the research period to ensure the maintenance of clinical skills.

More information can be found on the MB PhD website.

Postgraduate Foundation Programmes

The Clinical School works closely with the Eastern Postgraduate Deanery to provide Foundation Programmes as the first part of postgraduate education. During your Foundation Programme, usually at the end of Year 1, you receive full registration with the GMC providing that you can demonstrate that you are fit to practise medicine.
