While some universities keep their medical students away from the frontline until later in the course, Sheffield gives you clinical experience from a very early stage. Our methods include teaching on wards and in clinics as well as small group work and full body dissection. We also place a lot of emphasis on developing your communication skills: knowing how to speak to patients, and how to listen, is just as important as clinical expertise.
Graduates go on to train as foundation doctors in hospitals. From there, many become GPs or train as consultants. The MBChB is also excellent preparation for careers in other areas such as research, NHS management, medical journalism and pharmaceuticals.
