Despite recent unprecedented scientific and medical advances, inequalities between rich and poor are increasing. In this course, we study some of the social, environmental, political, economic and cultural factors responsible to try to understand the Global Health challenges facing the world today. This gives an important perspective whether you plan to work locally or internationally in the future.
Dundee allows you to study in a friendly, responsive and student-centred environment. Our comparatively small size as a medical school works to your advantage: there is close integration of teaching and research activities, and our medical students are fully involved from an early stage in pioneering new approaches to teaching, clinical practice and research. Ninewells Hospital and Medical School is the centre of many areas of pioneering research in cancer, keyhole surgery, heart disease, drug development, and medical education.
Students undertaking an intercalated BMSc are still central to the activities of the medical school. As well as the clinical environment you will experience cutting edge research led by world class researchers and clinicians.
In the 2015 Guardian University Guide medical schools ranking we were ranked 1st in Scotland and 4th in the UK. Our ranking in league tables, and student satisfaction with the quality of our course, is consistently high.
For entry to the BMSc (Hons) Intercalated course you must have successfully completed three years of an undergraduate medical degree (MBChB/MBBS etc) or two years of an undergraduate dental course (BDS).
