The Curriculum:

Our curriculum is designed to meet the fast-changing challenges of 21st century healthcare, which means it's founded on modern teaching methods, a solid grounding in the sciences, and structured regular clinical contact.

We are a Problem Based Learning (PBL) school - the main emphasis of problem based learning (PBL) is on small group working, centred around a ‘problem’ or scenario. These scenarios are hypothetical patient cases. Our PBL groups are facilitated by experienced clinicians who will facilitate and guide your learning. You will benefit from their experience in hospitals and GP practices, as they provide real-life clinical context for the situations you discuss as a group, while also helping you to learn professional values and behaviours.

We also offer early and sustained clinical exposure right from week 3 of the MBBS – in Year 1 you will spend half a day each week on clinical placement, alternating between GP/community care settings and hospitals. This builds up to 2 x half days per week in Year 2, before you start full time clinical placement in Year 3 onwards.

Anatomy at Hull York is a blended approach, combining prosections, medical imaging, anatomical models and cutting-edge techniques in living anatomy developed by our own researchers.
