Course content

HYMS is a fantastic place to pursue your MD in Medical Sciences. We have exceptional scientists, cutting-edge facilities and excellent student-centred support. We're a young, dynamic medical school and our range of research is remarkable — so there are many options for MD students.

The programme is open to qualified medical practitioners who have been practising medicine for at least two years after graduating. The full-time MD takes two years, but you can opt to study part-time so that it fits in with your clinical commitment.
