Warwick only offers a four-year medicine course for postgraduate students. The graduate medicine course offers early exposure to the clinical environment and high-standard anatomical education through new teaching facilities.
The first and second year of the course involves teaching primarily based on the university campus which includes small-group teaching and integrated clinical teaching in hospitals and GPs. Some of the content of learning in these years includes neuroscience, reproduction, circulation, metabolism, etc. Components of clinical teaching in these years involve establishing basic clinical skills, professionalism and communication skills. This clinical teaching will also involve learning on the wards, in outpatient clinics, operating theatres and in labs. In addition to this, students will get to experience involvement in clinical settings out-of-hours and during on-calls.
In the final two years involve further clinical education through many blocks of placements in various hospital and community settings. During these years students will take on specialist placements in disciplines including Child Health, Acute medicine, Women’s health, Psychiatry, etc.
In the fourth year, students will also undertake an elective (either abroad or in the UK) and student assistantships to allow them an opportunity to work with a clinical team in preparation for their roles and responsibilities as a Foundation Doctor after the end of the medical course. Student-Selected Components (SSCs) are also offered throughout the duration of the course which allows students the chance to study further into an area of interest to them.
