The MBS curriculum is based on an interdisciplinary approach that provides our students with the tools needed to solve the problems of the bioscience industry today and in the future. PROGRAM OVERVIEW The Masters of Bioscience is a two-year residential program that includes course work in both technical and business courses as well as a summer internship and the capstone, Team Masters Project. During the first year in the MBS program, students take a common set of core courses that include interdisciplinary applications-oriented technical courses, business courses and a bioindustry ethics course. In the second semester of the first year students have the opportunity to take elective courses. Between the first and second years, students participate in a required, paid internship in a bioscience company. The summer internship actively engages students in the issues and current techniques associated with particular industry sectors and provides an understanding of the climate and culture of business. Students must present an internship poster reviewed by KGI faculty. A summer internship represents approximately 400 hours of work. During the second year in the MBS program, students will be part of a Team Master's Project, which spans both semesters of the second year and provides the students with the opportunity to apply the tools they have gained in the first year. The degree requires completion of 66 units. All MBS students are required to complete two 400-level business units and two 400-level technical units. Most full semester courses are 3 units and most module-length courses are 1.5 units. MAJORS Students may focus their studies by choosing one of five career majors: Bioprocessing, Business of Bioscience, Clinical and Regulatory Affairs, Medical Devices and Diagnostics, or Pharmaceutical Discovery and Development. Please see career majors for more information about each of the majors. Coursework in the MBS curriculum allows students to achieve depth in an area that closely follows a specific industry career path.

TEAM MASTER'S PROJECT The capstone of the MBS program is the TMP in which teams of three to six students work with sponsoring companies to solve real problems. The Team Master's Projects ideally include both business and technical aspects; for example, students may be asked to validate a new technology and to develop a strategy for market penetration of the technology. The actual deliverables for each TMP are negotiated by the student team and the company liaison. Students are expected to spend about one-third of their time on the projects; including each Wednesday that is set aside for TMP work. Some class meetings are scheduled during the semester for lectures on Project Management and for teams to exchange oral progress reports. Typically each team will present once in each semester. Each team provides its sponsoring company with an interim report at the end of the first semester. A public, non-confidential presentation of all TMP projects occurs during the spring. In addition, teams are available to make confidential presentations of their work at the sponsoring companies’ sites. The final comprehensive report is due to the faculty advisor in draft form and a copy is forwarded to the sponsoring company. [-]

MBChB in Medicine and Surgery

University of Birmingham - College of Medical and Dental Sciences
Campus Full time 4 years September 2017 United Kingdom Birmingham

This four-year degree programme is designed specifically for graduates and is an excellent opportunity to develop the skills you need to become a medical practitioner. Right from the start, you’ll experience the practice of healthcare in the community with an attachment to a general practice, allowing you to see how your studies translate into clinical practice. [+]

Undergraduate degree course/programme Medicine and Surgery MBChB Graduate Entry Course A101 In addition to our five-year Medicine and Surgery MBChB programme, we have the four-year MBChB for graduates with a first degree in a life science. We will consider only those applicants for this programme who are classified as Home/EU. We also offer a three-year training programme for qualified dentists wishing to pursue a career in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. Further information is given within the course details tab (then, select ‘entry requirements’). This four-year degree programme is designed specifically for graduates and is an excellent opportunity to develop the skills you need to become a medical practitioner. Right from the start, you’ll experience the practice of healthcare in the community with an attachment to a general practice, allowing you to see how your studies translate into clinical practice. Academically able with a natural aptitude for science, you’ll have a strong interest in human affairs, a concern for the welfare of others, a flair for communication and the desire to make a real difference. You’ll also need a lot of drive to complete this demanding degree course. Throughout your time with us, you’ll be treated as an individual and we’ll encourage you to develop and explore your own professional interests. In 2016, the results of the National Student Survey (NSS) showed that 96% of our students were satisfied with the overall quality of this course. Outcome of the course Information for applicants At the end of the undergraduate course you will receive your MB ChB (or equivalent) degree, which is a primary medical qualification (PMQ). Holding a PMQ entitles you to provisional registration with the General Medical Council, subject only to its acceptance that there are no Fitness to Practise concerns that need consideration. Provisional registration is time limited to a maximum of three years and 30 days (1125 days in total). After this time period your provisional registration will normally expire. Provisionally registered doctors can only practise in approved Foundation Year 1 posts: the law does not allow provisionally registered doctors to undertake any other type of work. To obtain a Foundation Year 1 post you will need to apply during the final year of your undergraduate course through the UK Foundation Programme Office selection scheme, which allocates these posts to graduates on a competitive basis. So far, all suitably qualified UK graduates have found a place on the Foundation Year 1 programme, but this cannot be guaranteed, for instance if there were to be an increased number of competitive applications from non-UK graduates. Successful completion of the Foundation Year 1 programme is normally achieved within 12 months and is marked by the award of a Certificate of Experience. You will then be eligible to apply for full registration with the General Medical Council. You need full registration with a licence to practise for unsupervised medical practice in the NHS or private practice in the UK. Although this information is currently correct, students need to be aware that regulations in this area may change from time to time. There is some discussion about whether to remove provisional registration for newly qualified doctors. If this happens then UK graduates will receive full registration as soon as they have successfully completed an MB ChB (or equivalent) degree. It should be noted that it is very likely that UK graduates will still need to apply for a training programme similar to the current Foundation Programme and that places on this programme may not be guaranteed for every UK graduate. In addition the GMC is currently considering whether to introduce a formal assessment that all doctors would need to pass in order to be granted full registration. Although no firm decision has been taken as to whether or when such an exam will be introduced applicants should be aware that the GMC envisages that future cohorts of medical students will need to pass parts of a new UK Medical Licensing Assessment before the GMC will grant them Registration with a Licence to Practise. First year - Phase 1 Clinical Orientation This phase begins with a programme covering biological sciences, anatomy and medicine in society, since you will have covered little of these in comparison with your knowledge of other life science subjects. You’ll work on problem-based case studies as part of a tutor-supervised group of about eight students, with each of you covering all aspects of the case studies. The problems are grouped into four six-week themed blocks covering basic science, anatomy (including prosection), ethics, medicine in society and behavioural science, with all these aspects integrated into each of the case studies. Second year - Phase 2 Clinical Experience You will be based in the same Teaching Hospital Trusts that currently teach the third-year course for students on the five-year MBChB, spending the first semester in one teaching Trust and rotating to another in the second. You’ll also join our five-year MBChB students in their clinical science lectures, pharmacology teaching and special study modules in public health and epidemiology. In addition, as a GEC student you’ll continue with a small component of case-based learning to further your basic and behavioural science training. Students on the Maxillofacial Surgery training programme will commence their studies at this stage. Third and fourth years You will now move onto clinical attachments with attachments in medical, surgical and other speciality subjects, such as Cardiology, Neurology, Psychiatry, Bone and Joint Disease, Oncology, Ear, Nose and Throat and Peri-Operative Care. You will also do attachments in Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Paediatrics and General Practice. During the final year, you will be able to bring all of your learning and skills together through the Acutely Ill Patient attachment, as you prepare to become a medical practitioner. Admissions Process Preparing to Apply for Medicine When we are deciding whom to invite for interview, academic excellence is not our only criterion. Therefore it is important for you to demonstrate your motivation towards a career in medicine and are able to show evidence that you will be able to acquire the values of the NHS (including: working together for patients; respect and dignity; compassion; commitment to quality of care; resilience), through people-focused work experience or volunteering. It is essential that you provide evidence of an understanding of working in a UK healthcare environment and an on-going commitment to medicine. The types of experience that we value include voluntary work in a nursing home, care home, hospice or hospital volunteer. We do not rank applications on the amount of experience that has been obtained, though we do expect that the time spent is stated. We are more likely to be reassured of your commitment if you offer a combination of a minimum of two full weeks of experiences within the previous year. Shadowing of doctors is not required and, though it has its benefits, we prefer active involvement in a healthcare setting. Experiences gained whilst still at secondary school are of minimal importance. We recognise that extracurricular activity in areas outside of healthcare can supplement the development of the broader qualities required of a potential doctor. Therefore, you must offer significant and substantial involvement. We especially appreciate non-academic experiences that you have sought independently (such as a job in a customer-focused role). A voluntary role giving you responsibility for a group of individuals is also valued. In general, it should be very clear from your application that engagement in significant activity and taking on responsibility is natural for you and, therefore, should be on-going and of some years duration. We will consider all of these non-academic aspects as described in the personal statement and take account of your total involvement. Thus, for example, we will be concerned if there is little evidence of the use of relevant skills (leadership, effective team-working, problem-solving, coping with significant responsibility) even if there is a great deal of evidence of attending healthcare placements. Why study this course With five-and-a-half million people in the West Midlands area, you’ll be studying in the country’s largest health region. By choosing Birmingham, you will also benefit from an interdisciplinary programme taught by renowned academics whose expertise spans the full breadth of medicine. You will find excellent learning resources and a student-centred, participatory style of learning, together with the opportunity to focus your study on your chosen interests and career goals. The Medicine and Surgery programme benefits greatly from the very active research environment at Birmingham. The College of Medical and Dental Sciences, of which the Medical School is part, has a research income in excess of £50 million per annum, with several major centres focusing on areas that are at the forefront of medical science, including cancer, diabetes, stem cell biology, immunity and inflammatory disease, infection, cardiovascular science and ageing. In the last Research Assessment Exercise (RAE 2008) much of this research was rated as internationally excellent and world leading, with most of the remainder being internationally recognised. Notably, Birmingham has the first Cancer Research UK Centre, and was named as the leading cancer studies centre outside London, second only to the Institute of Cancer Research (RAE 2008). Entry requirements We will consider, normally, those applicants who have completed a life science degree at the time of application. We will rank applicants according to the quality of their degree result, giving preference to those with a 1st class mark, but we expect also to consider those who have achieved a result at the upper end of the 2:1 range. Secondary school qualifications are used to discriminate between applicants. In particular, we expect very good results in Science, English and Mathematics. As a guide our A level threshold requirements are BBB, though these grades may be raised through competition. A sound knowledge base in Chemistry is essential, either from A levels or other pre-university examinations, or from the content of the degree programme. Where the highest qualification in English or Maths is at GCSE, grade A is normally required. BTEC: BTEC Extended Diploma, Diploma and Subsidiary Diploma not accepted We want our students to start the course with a good knowledge of biological processes, cell functions and cell interactions. The degrees we regard as generally suitable are: Biochemistry/Medical Biochemistry Biomedical Science Dentistry Human Biology/Physiology/Pharmacology Pharmacy Physiotherapy Psychology (British Psychological Society accredited programme) Many other degrees may be suitable, but variations between different degree programmes will require each programme to be looked at individually (i.e. syllabus assessed). These include: Most Biological Sciences degrees Nursing Sports Science/Sports Studies MBChB Programme for Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Applicants We offer approximately five or six places on a three year training course for qualified Dentists who wish to pursue a career in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and who have achieved or are expected to achieve MJDF or MFDS. Unlike for the full graduate-entry course, international applicants can be considered but preference will be given to applicants who offer substantial evidence of clinical practice in the UK post graduation. It is important to demonstrate commitment to a career in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. Applicants must apply for Year 2 entry on the Graduate-entry course (A101), which must be indicated on the UCAS application. The number of places on this programme will depend on the availability of clinical placements. Additional information: We do not use any additional admissions test such as UKCAT or GAMSAT. Applicants should enter details of all their qualifications on the relevant section of the UCAS form. Incomplete applications may not be considered. Candidates who are undertaking higher degrees are expected to have completed all components of the assessment process (including receiving formal approval of corrections for a PhD thesis) before starting the course. A higher degree or a second degree does not supersede the above requirements. Where more than one undergraduate degree programme has been studied, the result for the first will be of prime consideration (even if it is in a non-relevant subject). Preference will be given to applicants who offer a degree from a UK-based institution because of the uncertainty in assessing the equivalence of degrees from overseas institutions. All candidates who receive offers will have been interviewed. Mature Applicants: The School welcomes applications from candidates who graduated a number of years previously, but will take account of the length of undergraduate and postgraduate training which has to be undertaken. In addition, we expect that no more than four years has elapsed since a significant and relevant qualification. Extenuating circumstances: We may be flexible over the route to achieve our academic requirements but we will not reduce the thresholds. We will consider only very serious life events occurring at an important stage in education; such as, absence from education for a significant period of time through illness or unexpected death of a close family member. Following discussion and receipt of independent evidence, we may, for example, consider applicants who study A Levels over 3 years. Please note that extenuating circumstances during exam periods should be presented to the relevant examination board(s) for consideration. We will not consider further mitigation regarding exam results beyond that which the examination board has deemed as suitable. Post-degree activity: We give preference to applicants who have completed their degree. Your application must leave us in no doubt that you will be/have been engaged fully in significant activity since graduation. We do not expect all of your experiences to be directly related to medicine but your healthcare involvement must be on-going. Repeat medicine application: We will not consider anyone whose application to Birmingham medical school has been rejected previously following interview. Otherwise, we will consider those applying for medicine for a second time. Re-sit grades: These are not considered (except, see extenuating circumstances) Transfer from another degree programme: We do not consider applicants who are currently studying or have previously studied medicine. Non-academic offer requirements All accepted candidates will be required to complete a health declaration form, and some may be contacted by an Occupational Health Physician where appropriate. The UK Government Health Authorities require that all medical students must be screened to ensure that they are not carriers of the hepatitis B virus. All applicants who accept an offer must: Undertake a screening blood test for Hepatitis B. If negative, they must start a course of immunisation. Thereafter provide certified evidence of these. Prospective students are strongly advised to take the blood test in good time. The UK Government Health Authorities recommend that all medical students should be offered screening for a number of blood-borne viruses (Hepatitis C and Human Immunodeficiency Virus as well as Hepatitis B). You should be advised that any health care worker who is infected with any of these viruses (or who cannot prove that they are not infected) is not able to undertake exposure prone procedures when qualified (which are defined as ‘those invasive procedures where there is a risk that injury to the worker may result in the exposure of the patient’s open tissues to the blood of the worker.’). The MBChB Course at Birmingham is a non-Exposure-Prone Procedure course, so students with Hep C and/or HIV will not reflect any risk to patients during the course. Therefore, students who are positive or decline the offer of a blood test will still be permitted to continue on the programme. Although, medical students may engage in exposure-prone procedures on a voluntary basis (for example, during their elective). If this is the case, students are required to be screened. International students: This full 4-year course is open to home/EU students only. Applicants must have excellent written and spoken English. In line with the requirements for applicants from the UK, normally we expect grade A in English at GCSE (or equivalent). Please note that the university’s Standard English language requirements are minimum standards, which are likely to be raised through competition. Depending on your chosen course of study, you may also be interested in one of our foundation pathways, which offer specially structured programmes for international students whose qualifications are not accepted for direct entry to UK universities.
