Medicine - Gateway to Medicine MBChB
Would you like to become a doctor but not sure if you've studied the correct subjects or have high enough grades? We can help you make the best possible start
This information will be updated by mid October for entry in 2023
Gateway is a one-year course designed to support you towards the five-year Dundee MBChB course if you meet relevant criteria.
Maybe you haven't studied chemistry to a high enough level or perhaps your grades have suffered due to hardship in your personal, home, or school life.
Our experienced staff will support you from day one and work closely with you to help you achieve your potential. You'll also benefit from our small and friendly learning community that will make you feel at home and support your learning.
As far as possible, what you study will be tailored to your personal academic needs and aspirations. If you are short of chemistry, maths, or physics, or you are still not confident in these subjects, you will study those in Semester 1.
Once you have chosen the right science subjects to help you progress, you'll select other subjects to complete your timetable.
Psychology can help you understand how patients behave and the signs and symptoms of neurological disorders. You can also choose anatomy modules, or one that gives you the option to study parts of the human skeleton in detail.
We also offer modules that cover key healthcare themes: healthcare provision in the UK, getting familiar with a working hospital by shadowing senior medical students, and making a difference by volunteering in the local community in a caring role. Our students find these valuable and enjoyable, plus they will help you learn how to talk to patients, which is something everyone finds a bit intimidating to begin with.
