Medicine

Queen’s is an exciting place to study medicine. Key features of our programme include participation in clinical skills in Year 1, integrated case-based learning to facilitate your application of knowledge and skills to clinical practice, whole body dissection and clinical learning in a wide range of primary and secondary care settings

There is a strong emphasis on inter-professional team working and in final year you will work alongside a junior doctor as you prepare for transition to the workplace. Four ‘Double-Helical Themes’ weave their way into every module and year of the course. These themes - the DNA of the curriculum - are Global and Population Health, Clinical Science and Practice, Achieving Good Medical Practice and Teamwork for Safe Care. 

As medical practice changes, so our course has changed to meet the challenges of 21st Century healthcare.

The award of the MB BCh BAO degree means that you are eligible to apply for provisional registration with the General Medical Council (GMC).

  • Simulation Centre

    Today’s students need to be equipped with the skills to enable them to continue to provide excellence in patient care in increasingly complex and changing clinical environments. The Queen’s Simulation Centre will be one of the few environments in the UK to truly champion simulation based education with an interprofessional approach. Medical, Nursing and Midwifery, Dentistry and Pharmacy students will train together in interactive scenarios that closely replicate the clinical setting. This will build on the University’s experience and expertise to transform training and ultimately enhance the effectiveness and safety of patient care. Professor Gerry Gormley will introduce our new Simulation suite and you will have an opportunity to take part in a live CPR Clinical Scenario.
