Medicine - University of Liverpool

The University of Liverpool School of Medicine aspires to create capable, confident and caring doctors equipped to practice in a 21st Century Healthcare Environment. The Liverpool MBChB curriculum aims to: • To ensure graduates have the necessary knowledge, skills and attitudes to safely and ethically practice medicine. • To ensure graduates meet the outcomes set out in the GMC’s Promoting Excellence: standards for medical education and training (2015) • To equip graduates with the knowledge, skills and attitudes required for a career in academic medicine. • To enable graduates to become lifelong learners committed to their own professional development. The spiral curriculum is based on 5 themes with content delivered over our 5 year programme. The themes are: Science and Scholarship, The Good Doctor, Core Skills, Patient in Primary Care and the Patient in secondary Care. Year 1 focusses on core clinical science with the introduction of pathology and disease in year 2. Years 3, 4 and 5 focus on becoming a practitioner and preparing for practice. The programme is accredited by the General Medical Council (GMC), this primary medical qualification entitles the holder to apply to the GMC for registration to practise medicine in the UK.
