Life at HYMS

At Hull York Medical School, the first two years of your education will be spent based in either Hull or York. Regardless of which campus you are based on, you will follow exactly the same curriculum and obtain the expertise and skills from academics, clinicians and tutors at both institutions.

In year three to five you will rotate through a series of clinical placements at the different NHS sites throughout the Hull York Medical School region; this includes York, Hull, Scunthorpe and Grimsby. We pride ourselves on the diversity of opportunities and experiences on offer. You will become immersed in life within different cities and cultures and study in a wide range of clinical environments: from the specialist acute centre at Hull Royal Infirmary to the smaller, more personal district general hospital in the coastal town of Scarborough.

The Hull York Medical School is an amazing place to be and there are lots of reasons to make us your first choice.

"The ethos of Hull York Medical School is one of a supportive community. Being one of the smaller medical schools in the country means you will know the majority of your peers as well as the friendly faces of staff. Being a cross-campus medical school means that you also get the best of both worlds, being a part of both University of York and University of Hull which is based in the UK City of Culture 2017."

"I found the course's early clinical exposure complemented the problem-based learning approach. I quickly realised the importance of the biopsychosocial approach to patients' problems, and found this patient-centred practice invaluable."

"From the first afternoon on placement in first year to the final rotations of fifth year, effective communication remains the basis around which the Hull York Medical School course revolves."
