The Medicine and Surgery programme at Birmingham offers you the first-class opportunity to develop the practical, theoretical and communication skills needed to become a safe and effective practitioner. Right from the start, you’ll experience the practice of healthcare in the community with a fortnightly attachment to a general practice, allowing you to see how your studies translate into clinical practice. Based in one of the largest healthcare regions in the UK, with a diverse population of over 5 million, your opportunities for contact with a wide range of patients and a variety of health conditions are exceptional. Located next door to the Medical School is the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, which offer outstanding placement opportunities. In 2017, the results of the National Student Survey (NSS) showed that 95% of our students were satisfied with the quality of the course.
