About the course

The Hull York Medical School (HYMS) is a partnership between the Universities of Hull and York, with newly-equipped teaching and learning facilities on the main campuses of both universities.

Our undergraduate medical course produces high-quality doctors for the future, in a friendly and supportive environment.

Key features for studying at HYMS include:

  • Clinical placements from the start, in a wide variety of settings
  • A blended learning approach, with clinician-led problem-based learning supported by lectures, clinical placements and Scholarship and Special Interest Programmes (SSIPs).
  • Teaching in small groups, led by clinicians
  • Close student support from peers, educational facilitators and clinical learning tutors
  • Uniquely, a balance of teaching across all parts of the health service. A large share of our clinical learning is in primary care, fully supported and integrated with learning centres across a range of hospital sites.
  • Clinical rotations across a diverse range of settings

Studying at HYMS means you'll be given opportunities to experience a broad range of learning activities — including, if you choose, working and studying in an international setting.

Future prospects

On graduating from HYMS, your MB BS joint degree from the two universities will entitle you to register provisionally with the UK's General Medical Council. You will then enter the Foundation programme, a two-year general programme forming a bridge between medical school and specialist or general practice training.

Over the two years, Foundation trainees have the opportunity to gain experience in a variety of specialties and healthcare settings before applying to enter a specialist area. There will also be openings if you want to pursue academic medicine. There are enough Foundation posts available across the HYMS area for all our graduates who wish to remain in the region.

Many students also choose to progress their studies at postgraduate level, and we offer a number of taught and research-led programmes.
