We are passionate about ensuring our students learn from meeting patients. That’s why we start regular clinical placements from the beginning of our programme, delivering a significantly higher proportion of our curriculum in these environments than many other medical schools.
As a doctor, you will treat patients from a range of backgrounds in a variety of settings and our placements provide a breadth of experience to ensure you are prepared for this.
You will experience placements throughout the region, ranging from rural and coastal communities to densely populated urban environments, offering a different patient demographic and experience at each site.
This breadth of clinical experience gives you the opportunity to explore different specialties.

We regularly review our placement offering to ensure you get the very best clinical experience across our region, and so it is possible that changes to the way we deliver placements may become necessary in future years.
From surgery to psychiatry, general practice to paediatrics and beyond, your experience will stand you in good stead for a career delivering exceptional care.
