Medicine MBChB

Our patient-focused MBChB course is designed to be clinically relevant and integrated throughout, enabling you to acquire the medical knowledge and professional competencies that are essential to practise medicine effectively. You will have hands-on experience, working with real patients from the beginning.

Throughout the course, you will learn from expert academics and medical practitioners working at the sharp end of the NHS. Their teaching is directly influenced by their expertise in such diverse fields as heart disease, cancer and genetics - some of the areas where Leicester's reputation is truly global.
