Medicine programme information for 2022 entry now live
3 March 2021
Hull York Medical School has launched its Medicine programme information for 2022 entry.
From information about how the Medicine and Medicine with a Gateway Year programmes are delivered, to what life is like as a Medicine student and a step-by-step guide to applying to medical school – their aim is to support students and their supporters throughout the entire application process. There is also a series of videos sharing the stories of Hull York Medical School graduates - providing insight into life as a doctor and showing the diverse range of students the School has studying medicine.
Sarah Fewster, Marketing and Communications Manager for the Medical School says, 'We recognise that applying to medical school can be overwhelming, and our aim is to give prospective students and supporters clear and concise information with the hope of inspiring and supporting everyone who is considering a career in medicine.'
The School has worked closely with current and prospective students to develop the programme information, making sure it provides the information that those students who are thinking about studying medicine will need to support what might be the most important decision of their lives so far.
Dr David Smith a 2015 graduate of the School who is now a Junior Doctor training to be a GP and an NIHR funded Academic Clinical Fellow in Primary Care (ST3) says: 'I chose to study at Hull York Medical School as I was really impressed with the novel way that they teach students. Problem Based Learning was such a perfect fit for the way I learn. I was able to explore medical scenarios and issues with the freedom I needed to really embed the learning for use in my future practice.
'The School also has a really strong research team. They were incredibly supportive when I choose to intercalate on a Masters programme as part of my undergraduate medical studies. Their research offering is so good, in fact, that I’ve returned to the medical school as part of my training to be a research-focused GP.
'Being a doctor is a really rewarding and exciting career. It’s not always easy but it is incredibly worthwhile. Hull York Medical School gave me the skills I needed to be the best I can be for the public in their times of need.'
Since the School was established in 2003, it has been inspiring future medical professionals with the research skills and knowledge they need to deliver brilliant healthcare. It offers exceptional medical education centred on problem-based learning, clinical and communication skills and early and sustained clinical experience across a range of healthcare settings. Prospective students can apply to study the School’s five-year MB BS Medicine programme, or the Medicine with a Gateway Year programme which is a widening participation initiative designed to support applicants from within the wider region from backgrounds traditionally underrepresented in medicine. Students at Hull York Medical School benefit from a welcoming and supportive environment, varied learning opportunities and access to a breadth of clinical experience as well as access to academics and clinicians across a range of specialities.
Professor Una Macleod, Dean of the Medical School says ‘Now more than ever before our NHS need confident, compassionate, exceptional doctors. We believe that our programme produces doctors who have the knowledge, skills and resilience to deliver a high standard of care in a rapidly changing environment now and in the future.’
