Medicine at University of Buckingham Medical School

Overview of University of Buckingham Medicine


The University of Buckingham Medical School is the UK's first independent not-for-profit Medical School. Our guiding philosophy is to produce highly ethical, honest and compassionate doctors who will put the patient first. Our curriculum is derived from a well-established MB ChB programme that has been refined over 20 years to provide optimum learning experience. Every aspect of it has been engineered to fully equip our students with the skills necessary to start their journey as medical practioners.


Course Structure at University of Buckingham Medicine

The course is 4.5 years long. In keeping with the Buckingham ethos, the ratio of students to academic staff, clinical educators and patients is kept low throughout Phases 1 and 2. We will assess your progress rigorously throughout the course so that you, the Medical School and the public can be confident that you are meeting the high standards required of a doctor. There will be a combination of written examinations, structured clinical examinations and the use of an e-portfolio of evidence of progress, all chosen to make the most valid and reliable test of your abilities.
