Medical Licensing Assessment (MLA)

The General Medical Council (GMC) has decided to introduce a Medical Licensing Assessment – the MLA - from 2022 to demonstrate that those who obtain registration with a licence to practise medicine in the UK meet a common threshold for safe practice. Applicants should be aware that to obtain registration with a licence to practise, medical students will need to pass both parts of the MLA, pass university finals and demonstrate their fitness to practise. For further information, please visit the GMC Medical Licensing Assessment website.

Course content

Our accelerated graduate-entry MB ChB is a challenging but extremely rewarding programme. It’s designed to help you become a highly competent, compassionate and motivated doctor. We won’t pretend it isn’t tough, after all we’re committed to developing doctors with the highest standards of professionalism and patient care, yet this will only add to the rewarding feeling you will experience when you meet your first patient.

Our innovative and distinctive programme is the largest graduate-entry course in the UK, with an intake of 193 graduates each year. The course is taught by staff and specialists at the forefront of their subjects at the University of Warwick and at our regional hospitals (University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire, Warwick Hospital, George Eliot Hospital (Nuneaton), and Alexandra Hospital, (Redditch).

Not only is our course the largest graduate-entry programme in the UK, we also hold the most comprehensive collection of plastinated human specimens in the UK. These specimens, from von Hagens Plastination (Germany), enable us to provide a unique, modern and engaging training in clinical anatomy that is directly relevant to clinical practice. These prosections provide invaluable hands-on experience for our students during their anatomy tuition. We also look forward to welcoming you to our new Clinical Education Hub, our bespoke anatomy and skills centre, due to open in September 2023.

By the time you graduate, you will have developed the knowledge and key personal skills and attitudes necessary to pursue a successful professional career as a doctor.
