Given the nature of the placement element in a critical care environment, and the point of academic entry into the programme, we ‘normally’ only consider medical students who have successfully completed (or anticipate successful completion) the fourth year of their primary medical degree.

All applicants will be required to provide written permission to intercalate from their medical school and evidence (via transcript) confirming completion of relevant clinical skills and research, to the level normally expected of a fourth year undergraduate medical student. We appreciate some of this evidence may not be available when a student initially applies; however, it will be required to secure a provisional offer if successful through the recruitment process.
