Top Bachelors in Nicosia in Cyprus. Introduction to Programme St George’s has a well-deserved reputation as a popular and competitive choice for students applying for medicine. The graduate entry programme was created in 2000 to attract mature applicants who already had a degree and who had experienced life in the world outside education. The course attracted widespread interest and became quickly recognised across the UK as being pioneering, innovative and cutting edge. Now the course has been modified and improved – the result of feedback from students and staff over the years. The philosophy behind the course is built around a student-centred approach towards learning in combination with learning through experience. It is problem-based and patient centred, right from the start of the course. Clinical and communication skills are given the importance they deserve, simulation being a key teaching aid – whether simulated patients, manikins, or complex state-of-the art computer-based simulations. E-learning is another important learning tool, students having access to the St George’s intranet site and library resources. The scientific basis of medicine is strongly emphasised throughout the course, but particularly in the first two years. The school in Cyprus is equipped with a brand new dissection room to learn anatomy using prosected specimens, imaging, anatomical models and computer-assisted learning. The first two years of the course take place in Cyprus, the last two years in state-of-the-art hospitals, such as the Swedish Covenant Hospital in Chicago and the Sheba Medical Centre in Tel Aviv. Students will graduate with a degree from St George’s Hospital Medical School, a constituent college of the University of London. This is a truly exciting opportunity for international students to undertake an identical programme, sit the same assessments, and gain the same degree but learn in different, and highly respected, clinical environments. The links between the University of Nicosia and St George’s are strong and fruitful. St George’s faculty and staff make regular visits to Nicosia to observe teaching, participate in assessments, take part in planning meetings and ensure the quality of the course provision. This is an exciting project for our two universities and we look forward to welcoming you on the course. Peter McCrorie Dean for Medical Education Structure of the academic year The curriculum is taught within a traditional academic year structure, starting in September. Years 2 and 3 are organised around the 6-week blocks that make up those years. Year 4, for reasons concerned with the required overall length of the course and its nature as a period of intensive clinical experience, is a continuous period of 45 weeks. Course Structure Four main themes underpin the course and feature throughout the four years: Basic and Clinical Sciences This theme provides you with the fundamental knowledge of the structure, function and development of the normal human body that will underpin your medical practice. Consideration will be given to all levels of organisation from the molecular and cellular, to organ systems and the whole individual. Included in this theme are anatomy, biochemistry, pathology, pharmacology and physiology as well as the scientific aspects of all the clinical disciplines, such as cardiology, obstetrics & gynaecology, neurology, urology, orthopaedics and rheumatology etc. Patient and Doctor Through this theme, students are equipped with the skills used by a doctor during direct patient contact. Learning will develop the clinical, communication and interpersonal skills necessary for medical practice. Community and Population Health Insights from the biological, social and psychological disciplines will be used in this theme to develop a way of thinking and working that considers the social factors underlying various health issues. Public Health Medicine, General Practice and Epidemiology are also prominent in this theme. Personal and Professional Development The context of practice has an impact on an individual doctor and on the profession as a whole. In order to function effectively within the medical community, it is essential to relate to the wider world, to recognise forces for change and to be able to understand external views of the profession. This theme covers medical ethics and the law relating to medicine, critical thinking and critical appraisal, interprofessional education, and professional behaviour. Basic and Clinical Sciences is the largest theme in terms of its content, as it incorporates the majority of the factual knowledge students require to qualify and register with the appropriate regulatory bodies in your country. However, all four themes are of equal importance in equipping the student for a professional lifetime as a medical practitioner. Admission Requirements Entry Requirements A Bachelors degree with at least a 2nd class honours or equivalent (3.0 GPA in the USA, 2.7 in Canada) or a higher degree (e.g., MSc, MPhil or PhD) in any discipline. You should have worked or had voluntary experience in a medical or health-related field and be able to demonstrate a broad awareness of the scope of medicine. You must have attained a satisfactory score in the Graduate Australian Medical School Admission Test (GAMSAT) or the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT). Please see the GAMSAT or MCAT websites for further details (www.gamsatuk.org or www.aamc.org/students/applying/mcat/). If English was not the primary language during your degree, you must also take the IELTS (International English Language Testing System) or equivalent (e.g., TOEFL). An IELTS score of 7.0 overall (with a score of 7.0 in the written element and no less than 6.5 in any other element) or equivalent is required. Interview If you are invited to an interview for the St George’s medical programme in Nicosia, it will be in a form of a Multi Mini Interview (MMI) and will be conducted through a video conference. The goal of the MMI is to find out if there is more to you than your grades. We want to establish whether you have the appropriate skills and attributes to complete the course successfully and to practise medicine professionally The interview will consist of eight questions, each lasting five minutes (40 minutes in total). One person (the interviewer) will conduct the Skype call with you, reading each question and recording your responses. Once the interview is over, each one of your recorded responses will be sent to eight different assessors who will evaluate them. Your total score will then be calculated and sent to the Admissions Committee for a decision. Why MMIs The MMI approach is a robust and efficient assessment method that is less subjective than a panel interview, ensuring candidates are treated fairly. In addition, MMIs allow us to contact the interviews more efficiently by assessing more candidates in a shorter period of time, which means you will find out the outcome of your interview sooner. We aim to send you an offer decision within two weeks of your interview. Screenings You must undergo satisfactory health and police screening, including a screen for and immunisation against Hepatitis B.
