About Graduate Entry Medicine at University of Sheffield

Graduates with an appropriate life sciences degree who come from a widening participation background are welcome to apply to our four-year graduate-entry medicine programme. You must meet any two of our widening participation criteria. For details see:
Widening participation entry requirements

Based on a patient-centred approach, the course is designed around common and important clinical conditions. It relates clinical medicine to the underlying medical sciences. You'll have the opportunity to develop your clinical competencies from the very start.

The course includes clinical teaching on wards in hospitals, clinics (both in general practice and in hospitals), lectures, seminars, tutorials, small group work and personal development supported by experienced teachers and personal academic tutors. We aim to ensure you're well prepared for a career in medicine.
