Benefits of a Bristol medical degree
As a Bristol medical graduate, you will be able to:
- synthesise evidence-based medicine with the concept of whole patient care;
- involve patients and their carers in shared decision-making;
- appreciate the social and biomedical determinants of health;
- work to make a difference to your patients and their communities;
- help deliver safe, sustainable, cost-effective health care systems;
- change your practice as society's expectations change, through a commitment to lifelong learning and development.
Study for an additional degree
Our intercalated degrees give you the option to study for a BSc in an additional subject such as neuroscience, international health or a BA in medical humanities.
The city of Bristol
Bristol is a beautiful and vibrant city. It has an illustrious history yet remains at the cutting edge. It is energised yet laid back; culturally rich but unpretentious; unorthodox and influential.
At the end of your course you will receive your MB ChB. This is a primary medical qualification (PMQ) allowing provisional registration with the General Medical Council.
As a provisionally registered doctor, you can only practise in an approved Foundation Year 1 post.
