Gateway to Medicine

This course is aimed at students who have the potential to become doctors but do not meet the academic entry criteria to apply directly to MB ChB Medicine. It is a widening participation initiative for UK students who fulfil specific criteria. You will develop your interest and knowledge of the basic sciences which underpin the study of medicine and to foster professional behaviours and attitudes. Medical-related work experience will form part of the course. Successful completion of this year will enable you to progress to the MB ChB Medicine. **Eligibility Please note: This course is open to applicants from specific schools and colleges in the UK only.** Further information, and lists of the eligible schools and colleges, can be found on the admissions statement. Health and conduct Certain health conditions may be incompatible with careers in some branches of medicine. If you have a chronic health problem, you should contact the Admissions Office (admissions-med@bristol.ac.uk) for guidance on making an application. We have excellent support services available including Disability Services, student health and student counselling provision to support students where appropriate. Medical students must complete a health questionnaire and undergo a medical examination. Non-immune students must be immunised against hepatitis B and tuberculosis. In accordance with General Medical Council guidelines, medical students must undergo a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check in line with other UK health-related courses.
