The Foundation Year
This gateway to medicine course is available to encourage access to medicine as a career to students from a diverse range of backgrounds.
The Foundation Year covers all the important elements of human biology to reinforce your prior knowledge. You will also follow a module in Professionalism and Communication, which will help to understand the demands and the role of being a doctor, and maintain an assessed reflective portfolio of personal and professional development.
In addition, you will have enrichment experiences to allow you to participate in medical school educational activities and to develop your study skills.
What will I learn?
All the important elements of biology and chemistry required for your studies in years one to five are studied. In addition, you will cover key topics in health psychology, population health, professionalism and communication and have your learning set in clinical context where appropriate. Further subjects covered include biochemistry, genetics, anatomy, microanatomy and microbiology.
Study skills tuition supports the practical work you do, developing key skills in writing, information gathering, data analysis and examination success to name a few. We’ll also prepare you for a smooth transition to the five-year course via sessions with new tutors and visits to the dissection suite.
Progression after year one onto BMBS Medicine (A10L five-year course)
Students who successfully meet the progression requirements of the foundation year will then join year one students on the five-year A10L Medicine course.
