Medicine and Surgery (Accelerated Programme) MB BS Honours
UCAS Code: A101 (4 Years)


Students practicing Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) This four-year accelerated programme is designed for graduates of any discipline who wish to train as a doctor, and others whose prior professional experience qualifies them for entry.

As in our five-year programme, there are two Phases of study. However, in our accelerated degree, Phase I spans 45 weeks instead of two years.

During Phase I, you learn through case-led teaching, with clinical cases used to ensure a problem-first, task-based focus.

You are allocated to a small study group, led by a senior medical tutor who provides support and guidance throughout the year.

In Phase II, you are integrated into a single common pathway alongside undergraduate students on our five-year course.

Medicine at Newcastle is consistently one of the most highly regarded medical degrees in the UK. The excellence of our programmes has been confirmed by the General Medical Council (GMC).
