In collaboration with the University of Nottingham, the University of Lincoln offers a five-year medical course after which students are awarded their medical degree by the University of Nottingham.
In the first year, students are taught the scientific fundamentals of Medicine as well as certain skills in professionalism and other clinical skills. The themes of learning focus on clinical problems such asrespiratory medicine, cardiovascular medicine, musculoskeletal system and cancer. This learning is integrated with hospital and GP attachments. The clinical problem-centred learning continues into the second year to include GI diseases, endocrinology, the nervous system and the reproductive system. Optional modules are also taken throughout these two years.
In the third year, students work towards obtaining a BMedSci degree which involves undertaking a supervised research project, a Research Methods module and optional modules in advance medical science.
In the fourth and fifth years, clinical education is massively expanded through extensive placements in hospitals and community-settingsacross Lincolnshire. Student-Selected Modules are also undertaken by students (abroad or in the UK). The final year primarily focuses on preparation for becoming a Foundation programmewhich includes an assistantship to shadow a current junior doctor.
