University of East Anglia 6 Year Medicine

First-rate experience, first-rate doctor. Being a doctor is a privileged position that is demanding, challenging but ultimately an extremely rewarding profession. Studying Medicine at Norwich Medical School means you will be a part of an environment where patients are at the heart of everything we do. The course has been carefully designed in conjunction with the General Medical Council.

Overview

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.

Throughout the course you will develop the necessary knowledge and expertise to achieve your ambition of becoming a doctor. You will be supported in the development of excellent clinical skills, while learning to communicate effectively so that you can relate to patients and their loved ones with compassion and understanding. Through working within teams, you will develop a co-operative and approachable working style, vital for a successful doctor. Through group and individual work, you will develop problem solving skills to apply your medical knowledge to practical situations. This is the essence of Problem Based Learning, which, supplemented by lectures, seminars and practical classes, is a significant component of the course.

The foundation year focuses on teaching you study skills, sciences and introducing you to social sciences within healthcare, in preparation for joining year 1 of the MBBS course, where you will get to develop your skills in such areas as clinical practice and anatomy. If your circumstances or education opportunities have not given you a fair chance to realise your academic potential, the foundation year is the perfect way to amend this. This ‘widening access’ course is particularly targeted at those who live in East Anglia, but not exclusively so.
