A detailed version of the timetable is available as an Acrobat PDF file. The programme diverges from the normal undergraduate medical curriculum in early summer after the intercalated BSc.
The First Year is different from that experienced by the ‘regular’ MBBS students. It starts earlier, and is shorter. Different aspects of clinical medicine are studied from July until Christmas. Students also attend part of the MBBS Year 4 (Integrated Clinical Care) Introduction and Orientation Module in September. Research work for the PhD begins in January of Year 1. Throughout the PhD period, there are weekly bedside clinical sessions to maintain and enhance the student’s clinical skills. Students must attend at least two per month. Sessions will include Metabolic/Renal, ID/Haematology and Neurology which are normally taught in Year 4 of the MBBS programme but deferred until Year 6 in the shortened MBPhD programme.
Year 2, 3 and 4
Apart from the clinical sessions and the MBBS summative written and clinical examinations in July, the student is free to pursue their research until September of Year 4 without interruption. The student may return to the MBBS programme at the end of Year 3, if their research is complete and their thesis submitted before returning to the MBBS. All students must complete their research and submit their thesis in order to be permitted to re-enter the MBBS.
will join MBBS Year 5 (Life Cycle) in September and complete the specialties of
that year and required examinations: Child & Family Health; Women's & Men's Health and Care of the Older Person/End of Life.
Year 5/6 of MBPhD
MBBS Year 6, Preparation for Practice. As with other medical students, those on the MBPhD programme will undertake the final year DGH Assistantship including General Practice and directed SSCs and a directed Elective before taking written and clinical finals. The directed SSCs and elective will cover subjects not taken in the abbreviated Year 1.
