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.

"As most HYMS students will tell you, the early clinical exposure is the most enjoyable part of the course. Being on clinical placements at such an early stage has provided a valuable opportunity to apply the theoretical concepts we learn in a realistic setting."

"One of the first things I was impressed with was the York campus -- the beautiful lakeside views and scenery are ideal for evening walks, especially after a hectic PBL session!"

"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."
