Program description

Medicine: North Wales

Bangor university is delivering the C21 north Wales Graduate entry to medicine 4 year program (MBBCh) in collaboration with Cardiff University’s School of Medicine. The program is entirely based in north Wales with placements across the region and we aim to train the very best doctors for Wales and more widely in the UK by providing high quality teaching, and an inspiring learning experience based around increased clinical contact.

What is C21 north Wales?

The C21 north Wales course is delivered in partnership between the School of Medical Sciences at Bangor University and Cardiff University School of Medicine. It provides graduate entry students with the opportunity to undertake all their medical degree in north Wales.

Students on this Medicine program will broadly follow the same curriculum as those based in Cardiff but with a greater focus on community medicine through a range of clinical placements in varied environments including a full year at a GP Surgery, time in large teaching hospitals, mountain medicine and rural environments. Students will also experience small group teaching at Bangor University (TEF Gold rated) and award-winning clinical teaching at the University Health Board.

The C21 north Wales course accepts high performing students from recognised feeder stream courses linked to the School of Medicine’s Graduate Entry Program and also students already accepted onto A100 program who wish to transfer after successful completion of their first year. It aims to offer comprehensive preparation for a rewarding working life as a Foundation Doctor in the NHS and the career beyond. The course is structured to allow students to acquire the necessary knowledge, clinical skills and professional attitudes required by the General Medical Council within an integrated spiral curriculum. The course is designed to produce great clinicians who understand people and the environment in which we live.
