Why study Medicine at Leicester?

  • We have outstanding facilities. Our main medical teaching building, the £42 million George Davies Centre, is a state-of-the-art, environmentally-friendly building that harnesses the very latest technology and resources, creating an outstanding learning environment for our medical students.

  • Our integrated course is patient-focused from the very beginning, with clinical attachments in each year of your studies, starting with Year 1.

  • All first year students are provided with iPads. Lecture and group work material is delivered directly onto these iPads enabling you to annotate during sessions. Content can also be rapidly revised and updated. All the resources you need will be at your fingertips.

  • Unlike many medical schools, we still believe that the best way to learn anatomy is through full body dissection. Our newly enhanced dissecting room benefits from the latest technology such as Apple TVs and video recording equipment.

  • Our Clinical Skills Unit offers high tech simulated manikins (iStan® and SimMan®) to enable you to practice procedures in a safe environment before having to perform them on patients.

  • Our curriculum includes training on the applications of digital technology to patient care, ensuring that your knowledge of the digital resources available is always up-to-date.

  • From the start of your third year, teaching is designed around extended clinical placements in hospitals or the community, allowing you to learn from those at the front line of their speciality.

  • We have many partnerships with hospitals in the region, from Leicester's big city hospitals to hospitals in Lincoln and Northampton, meaning you gain experience in a diverse range of environments.

  • You will be fully prepared to work as a Foundation Doctor. The last six months of the course is dedicated to preparing you to work in hospital and community environments, making the transition from student to doctor as seamless as possible.

  • We offer different ways to study for an intercalated degree, so you can choose one that suits your strengths and aspirations.
