Bristol has a well established Medical School which focuses on developing clinical skills as well as the professional and personal attributes required to be a doctor, and provides information about careers options for medical students.

Sector information

Bristol Medicine students will also develop a range of transferable skills, such as critical appraisal, observation, listening, reflection, logical reasoning and decision making. These skills are crucial when working as a doctor, but can be just as useful in work outside Medicine.
