Team-Based Learning (TBL)

MBBS students learn in small groups of 5-6 people facilitated by academics and enhanced by the use of TBL-enabled software. TBL is a modern approach and an alternative to the traditional learning (lectures) and Problem-Based Learning (PBL).

Learn the science and ‘art’ of medicine

Here at Brunel we don’t teach science in isolation, you’ll study the context and application of medical knowledge as well. You’ll learn all about the science of medicine – how doctors use up-to-date scientific research to aid decision-making. You’ll also learn the ‘art' of medicine - how evidence-based medicine is applied to every patient you will see.

Prepare for ‘world’ medicine

You’ll learn about the 21st century challenges that we face, its impact on health, and how this relates to the practice of caring for patients.  You’ll discover the significance of prevention, public health, rehabilitation and other aspects of clinical medicine on a global scale. We’ll prepare you to practise medicine not just in the UK and your home country but also on a world-wide level.

The developed ‘digital’ world - Through our innovative curriculum you will experience a range of technologies e.g. artificial intelligence, robotics, virtual reality and delivering virtual consultations.

The developing world – You’ll be trained to practise medicine by considering the signs and symptoms of the patient without many aspects of modern technology. In some cases without electricity!

A focus on community medicine

An exciting element of our MBBS in Medicine is how you’ll apply your clinical knowledge and skills in our local communities. You’ll be trained to look at the 'bigger picture' by learning how to ensure good health for everyone, not just the health for one patient. The valuable experiences gained locally can be applied to benefit communities around the world. 

A Primary Medical Qualification 

A UK medical degree is recognised around the world. You'll graduate with a Primary Medical Qualification, which provides you with provisional registration with the GMC and license to practise in Foundation Year 1 / Residency Year 1 posts.

Be a part of our international community 

The world’s students call Brunel home, something we’re extremely proud of. In fact, there are around 150 of the world's countries represented at Brunel which gives you the opportunity to live and study as part of a diverse, global community.
