Improving employability in a changing healthcare environment
Over ninety-nine percent of our medical and ninety-nine percent of our dental graduates found employment in the last academic year. We will work closely with you throughout your time at the Schools to ensure that you are properly advised on career development. Through close links with the South West Peninsula Deanery for Medicine, which is situated adjacent to the our Headquarters and the Dental Deanery based in Bristol, we endeavour to ensure that your self-selected learning experiences reflect your ambitions.
While our core commitment is to produce outstanding, well-prepared and highly competent doctors and dentists for the NHS, we recognise that some students will seek opportunities in the independent health sectors and overseas. We will ensure that your learning experiences enable you to be competitive in any clinical employment market.
Typically, human health graduates find employment in a diverse range of science related roles. Graduates from our programmes: continue with full-time higher research degrees and academia; gain entry onto post-graduate medical and dental programmes; pursue post-graduate teaching qualifications; work within the science media; work within an industrial setting; work within clinical diagnostic laboratories, or use their graduate skills to obtain work in non-science related fields.
