Whether it’s working as a doctor in the NHS or taking your skills to developing countries, we’ll work closely with you throughout your degree to give you all the advice you need to take your career in the direction you’d like.
We’re rightly proud that 100 per cent of our graduates found employment in the last academic year (Source: Unistats). Ensuring that you graduate with the knowledge, skills and attitudes required for safe practice and entry into your first clinical job is our absolute priority – so we’ve carefully structured our BMBS degree to do just that.
While our primary focus is on producing exceptionally well-prepared and highly competent doctors for the NHS, we understand you may want to follow opportunities in the independent health sectors and overseas. Whatever direction you decide to take, we’ll ensure your learning experiences make you stand out in any clinical employment market.
After qualifying, you’ll move on to the foundation years of your medical education and training. If you’re planning to continue working in the South West, you’ll benefit from our close relationship with the South West Peninsula Deanery, which supervises postgraduate medical education and training in the region.
