About Medicine at University of Sheffield

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, dissection and personal development supported by experienced teachers and personal academic tutors. We aim to ensure you're well prepared for a career in medicine.
