The School of Medicine at St Andrews offers an undergraduate course, the BSc (Honours) Medicine degree, which is designed to meet the General Medical Council’s expectations expressed in ‘Outcomes for Graduates.’ Students on this degree graduate after three years and move on to one of the University's partner medical schools to complete a further three years of training and graduate with a Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery (MBChB/MBBS).
From 2018 entry, the School will also offer a four year Scottish Graduate Entry Medicine course (ScotGEM). This graduate entry programme is intended to provide a pathway into Medicine for graduates from an Arts or Science background, and will lead to a Primary Medical Qualification which meets General Medical Council requirements. The programme is being run in partnership with NHS Scotland and the Universities of St Andrews, Dundee and the Highlands and Islands.
Postgraduate courses offered include taught Masters in Health Psychology and Global Health as well as a range of PhD and MD opportunities.
The purpose-built research facilities within the School of Medicine provide the infrastructure and academic environment to ensure the sustained development and expansion of medical research in St Andrews in the future.
