Supporting your academic progress

The MB ChB course is an accelerated programme designed to prepare you to qualify as a doctor in four years rather than the traditional five years of training. This means that it is intensive, challenging but also highly rewarding. You will experience new ways of working and a breadth of learning experiences impossible to find in any other subject. Our aim is to support you to meet these new academic and clinical challenges so that you progress successfully through each phase of the course.
