We offer a cutting-edge, contemporary curriculum. Fresh, innovative and distinctive, our MB BS programme is delivered with all the dynamism you would expect from a young medical school – combining high quality teaching with early and sustained clinical exposure in primary and secondary care settings.

We are committed to delivering exceptional medical education and ensuring our graduates, now and in the future, are equipped with the medical knowledge and analytical, problem solving and communication skills needed to deliver brilliant healthcare.

Though our strong partnerships with our NHS trusts and community based health organisations, feedback from our staff, students and alumni, we remain in touch with workforce and patient needs at a local and national level and continually adapt our programme to meet those needs.


At Hull York Medical School, we equip you with the skills you need to succeed in an ever-changing NHS, ensuring you are able to respond and adapt to the challenges and opportunities you will face as a practising doctor.

Professor Martin Veysey MB BS Programme Director and Consultant Gastroenterologist


Our curriculum is designed to meet the fast-changing challenges of 21st century healthcare, which means it's founded on modern teaching methods, a solid grounding in the sciences, and structured regular clinical contact.

We recognise that disease doesn’t exist in isolation, so we have developed a tightly integrated curriculum which enables you to make meaningful and practical connections between individual areas of study. You will explore topics through a range of themes and disciplines, each presented in a clinically relevant context, and supported through clinical experience, problem-based learning, lectures, clinical and communication skills classes and workshops.

At the end of the five-year programme, you will graduate with a UK and EU recognised MB BS (Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery) degree, awarded jointly by the Universities of Hull and York. After graduating, you are entitled to provisional registration with the UK General Medical Council, and are given a licence to practise medicine.
