A doctor engages in discussion with colleagues.Our five-year MBChB Medicine undergraduate programme focuses on developing future doctors who have patient safety at the core of their practice and who are responsive to the diverse and complex needs of individuals and populations. The course leads to a Primary Medical Qualification, entitling student doctors to provisionally register with the General Medical Council.

Alongside this five-year course, the University is offering MBChB Medicine with Foundation Year. This six-year programme is aimed at candidates from non-traditional and under-represented groups across the North West of England. Upon achievement of the required pass mark for the Foundation Year, you will be eligible to progress onto the five-year MBChB Medicine degree.

The Faculty of Health, Social Care and Medicine is one of the leading providers of education and training for health and social care professionals in the North West of England.

Offering some of the best facilities for health, social care and medicine students in the country, the outstanding teaching and learning resources include leading edge clinical skills facilities, an 860-seat lecture theatre, and a variety of teaching rooms and social learning spaces.

The existing clinical skills and simulated learning facilities are undergoing expansion in 2019. A new multi-professional clinical learning centre will offer a variety of simulated environments from home, through primary and/or emergency care, to secondary care and beyond. This will enable you to undertake practical scenarios in realistic settings.
