Course Content

This course will equip you with the essential knowledge, understanding, skills and attitudes required to practice medicine competently and professionally in a patient-centred, multidisciplinary environment.

Medicine MBBS is underpinned by four main themes:

  • Basic and Clinical Sciences
  • Patient and Doctor
  • Community and Population Health
  • Personal and Professional Development

In the early years these themes are delivered through six modules: Life Cycle; Life Protection; Life Support; Life Maintenance; Life Structure; and Life Control.

In years one and two, the emphasis is on lectures, tutorials and group activity with short clinical and community-based placements.

From year three the emphasis shifts away from lecture-based activity to a combination of problem based learning and student-selected components, rotating with clinical attachments. Clinical attachments from year three onwards are primarily based at healthcare trusts, but also at hospitals and other community-based sites in south London and the south-east of England.

You have the opportunity in your third or fourth year to undertake an intercalated BSc of your choice.

In years four and five the focus is heavily on clinical attachments, again with complementary lectures running in parallel. You have maximum exposure to clinical environments in hospitals, primary care trusts and other community-based attachments.

Within the final year all students undertake an elective. This is an opportunity for you to explore, in a practical setting, an aspect of medicine of particular interest to you, anywhere in the world. Elective plans are reviewed and approved by an academic member of staff, and a report is written upon completion.

This course will equip you with the essential knowledge, understanding, skills and attitudes required to practice medicine competently and professionally in a patient-centred, multidisciplinary environment.

Assessment Methods

Emphasis is on regular formative and summative assessments with detailed feedback throughout.

Assessment methods include short answer questions, single best answer, clinical cases e.g. mini-CEX (Clinical Evaluation Exercise), Direct observations of Practical Procedures (DOPS), Case Based Discussion (CBD). St George's also assesses students with Objective Structured Practical Examinations in the Dissecting Room, and Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCEs) where students perform a set of structured tasks, which can include practical procedures, interviewing skills and examination of patients.

You will be assessed in three domains:

  • Doctor as practitioner – you will be assessed through objective structured clinical examinations (OSCE)
  • Doctor as scientist – you will be examined through year-end knowledge tests
  • Doctor as professional – through longitudinal professional assessment, attendance and case analysis project
