Success in medicine requires application and hard work, both while studying and when in practice. However, it brings great rewards in terms of job satisfaction, involving, as it does, a combination of science with human interactions and numerous career opportunities.

In choosing to study medicine you are embarking on a course that will prepare you to enter the medical profession with a strong foundation in clinical medicine, and the biomedical and social science that underpins it. The Cambridge medical course places an emphasis on the scientific basis of medicine during the early years, with all students entering the Cambridge clinical course in year 4. Academic and pastoral support is provided by your College throughout the course.
