In the Clinical School, student education builds on the scientific basis of medicine studied as the Medical and Veterinary Sciences Tripos in the first three years of the Cambridge degree programme. Grounded in the principles of scientific enquiry and evidence-based medicine, we offer a broad-based clinical curriculum encompassing primary, community–based and hospital care. Students are encouraged to build on their knowledge base to develop excellence in the clinical, communication, behavioural, attitudinal and practical skills required for good medical practice in all clinical specialties.
Based on the Cambridge Biomedical Campus and at Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Trust, the Clinical School offers the opportunity to study in one of the most exciting medical centres in the UK, where high quality clinical care is supported by excellent teaching and research.
Student teaching also occurs in a network of regional hospitals throughout the East of England region and a large number of teaching general practices, all formally associated with the Clinical School. Geographically these Trusts and general practices form three hubs linked by the online virtual learning environment, enabling simultaneous curriculum delivery across a wide range of clinical sites.
