Warwick Medical School has been ranked second in the UK based on graduating students’ highest average total score for the Foundation Programme.
The Foundation Programme is a two-year training programme that new junior doctors move on to after completing their studies. The placement they are allocated is determined by a score based upon their academic performance at medical school and their clinical judgement assessed in the programme’s Situational Judgement Test, which they sit at the end of their degree.
We are delighted that this year our students’ highest average total score has placed them second in the UK, just 0.05 points behind leaders Cambridge.
Thanks to their fantastic results, 90.08% of our students have been allocated to their first preference for the Foundation Programme - an all-time high for Warwick. And 100% of our students were allocated to one of their top 5 preferences, which is the joint highest result in the UK.
In other achievements:
- One of our students, James Thornton, was the overall top performing Foundation Programme candidate in the UK.
- We‘ve been ranked third in the UK based on our finalists' Situational Judgement Test scores.
- We’re fifth in the UK based on the percentage of accepted offers for the Academic Foundation Programme. The Academic Foundation Programme is a very competitive programme that gives Foundation doctors the opportunity to take time out of their clinical training to conduct one or more scholarly activities in research, medical education or leadership.
