Our MB ChB programme is taught full time over four and a half years. The course is divided into two phases. Phase 1 is the initial two years taught both at the University of Buckingham and in local clinical environments. In Phase 1, students will acquire the foundations of clinical practice and learn critical skills and basic and applied sciences. Phase 2 takes two and a half years and is spent entirely in clinical placements at Milton Keynes Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, Bedford Hospital, St Andrew’s Healthcare in Northampton and other local healthcare providers. During Phase 2, students will work intensively with patients and doctors in a clinical setting and will be given structured exposure to all aspects of medicine in both the hospital and the community.
