Building on the graduate’s prior knowledge in an extended Year One, the School fast-tracks graduates through the medical core of Years One and Two of the five-year programme. The programme develops such that the underlying biomedical sciences are integrated with an increasing proportion of clinical practice. Theoretical learning is carried out in small, problem-based groups and is supported by lectures, together with Communication and Clinical Skills components, the Human Anatomy Resource Centre and laboratory sessions. You will be integrated with the second year students on the five-year A200 course and will be cutting your first cavities at an early stage of the first term. At the end of Year One, you will undertake the same assessment as those completing Year Two of the five-year programme. If successful you will then follow the final three yearsof the five-year BDS programme (A200).
