Course detail

Description

Course details

The MBBS programme at King’s aims to train students to become:

  • Critical scientific thinkers.
  • Collaborative leaders and innovators.
  • Outstanding patient-centred clinicians.
  • Excellent team-players.
  • Educators and life-long learners.
  • Resilient and adaptable professionals.

The MBBS curriculum is divided into three ‘Stages’. Although we offer four entry routes into Medicine, all our students follow the same core MBBS curriculum

As a student on the Maxfax Entry Programme you will not take Stage 1, and you will join the other medical students at Stage 2.

Stage 2 (Principles of Clinical Practice) brings together science and clinical practice in blocks organised around the human life-cycle and common pathological processes. It focuses on the care of patients with common conditions in a range of clinical settings. You will also follow patients for prolonged periods of time to learn how to deliver whole-person care. This stage is underpinned by study in biomedical and population sciences.

Stage 3 (Integrated Clinical Practice) is oriented towards future practice, and includes the opportunity to undertake elective study abroad. You will also conduct quality improvement projects and develop skills to transform patient and population health at home and abroad. Inter-professional training and increasingly realistic simulation are important parts of the curriculum.

The intercalated degree is a one-year BSc programme which gives you the opportunity to study the subjects of your choice in greater depth. As a multi-faculty institution, we offer an unrivalled range of intercalated degrees, from clinical and biomedical sciences to humanities subjects.

Outcome of the programme

At the end of the undergraduate programme you will receive your MBBS (or equivalent) degree, which is a primary medical qualification (PMQ). Holding a PMQ entitles you to provisional registration with the General Medical Council (GMC), subject only to its acceptance that there are no Fitness to Practise concerns that need consideration. Provisional registration is time limited to a maximum of three years and 30 days (1125 days in total). After this time period your provisional registration will normally expire.

Provisionally registered doctors can only practise in approved Foundation Year 1 posts: the law does not allow provisionally registered doctors to undertake any other type of work. To obtain a Foundation Year 1 post you will need to apply during the final year of your undergraduate programme through the UK Foundation Programme Office selection scheme, which allocates these posts to graduates on a competitive basis. All suitably qualified UK graduates have found a place on the Foundation Year 1 programme, but this cannot be guaranteed, for instance if there were to be an increased number of competitive applications from non-UK graduates.

You will normally successfully complete Foundation Year 1 within 12 months, which is marked by the award of a Certificate of Experience. You will then be eligible to apply for full registration with the General Medical Council. You need full registration with a licence to practise for unsupervised medical practice in the NHS or private practice in the UK.

Although this information is currently correct, you need to be aware that regulations in this area may change from time to time.

There is some discussion about whether to remove provisional registration for newly qualified doctors. If this happens then UK graduates will receive full registration as soon as they have successfully completed an MBBS (or equivalent) degree. It should be noted that it is very likely that UK graduates will still need to apply for a training programme similar to the current Foundation Programme and that places on this programme may not be guaranteed for every UK graduate.

The GMC is currently considering the introduction of a formal assessment that UK medical graduates would need to pass in order to be granted registration with a licence to practise. Although no final decision has been taken as to whether or when such an exam will be introduced you should be aware that the GMC envisages that future cohorts of medical students may need to pass parts of a medical licensing assessment before the GMC will grant them registration with a licence to practise.

Location

We offer you unrivalled educational resources for studying medicine, including the Gordon Museum, which is the largest pathology museum in the UK. Our Chantler Simulation & Interactive Learning Centre is a state-of-the-art inter-professional undergraduate and postgraduate facility providing clinical classrooms.   You will learn in a wide variety of hospital and community care settings; students undertake placements at general practices and district general hospitals mainly located in London, Kent and Surrey.

    Required Modules

    Stage 2 – years 1 and 2

    • From Science to Clinical Practice
    • Longitudinal placements
    • Doctor as teacher

    Optional Modules

    You also have the opportunity to explore other subjects of your choice in greater detail which take the form of the following:

    • Student selected components (SSCs): SSCs are projects and short courses in medical, scientific and non-medical subjects that let you follow your personal interests. You may choose up to two of these.
    • Scholarly projects: You will undertake a scholarly project in an area of interest selected from across the multi-faculty university.
    • Taster module: Short clinical placements which allow you to explore a clinical specialty, to test career prospects and explore possible specialties.
