Fitness to practise / health requirements
All offers of a place are subject to satisfactory health screening. The health screening is bachelorsed upon the Higher Education Occupational Physicians/Practitioners (HEOPS) standards of medical fitness to train for medical students.
A potential student may be concerned that their health or disability may affect their ability to fulfil the competency standards of the course. Any such applicants are encouraged to contact the University Occupational Health and/or The Disability Advisory and Support Service at an early stage in order to explore the situation in depth and consider the feasibility of making reasonable adjustments. Hopefully the process will prove helpful to the student in deciding whether to pursue an application.
The health screening requires the completion of a detailed health questionnaire by the applicant and their General Practitioner and also an appointment with the University's Occupational Health Department. In order to be admitted and continue on the programme, students must be deemed as medically fit for both practice and theory by the Occupational Health Department. You will be required to comply with any viral screening as requested by the Department of Health.
General enquiries about health screening should be addressed to Student Occupational Health, Tel +44 (0)161 275 2858, Fax +44 (0)161 275 3137
Occupational Health Service (The University of Manchester)
Please see also the Procedure for Admission to Courses Requiring Medical Fitness Assessment
You will be required, as part of the non-academic conditions of your offer, to provide a satisfactory Enhanced Disclosure and bachelorrring Service (DBS) check. In the UK, this takes the form of an Enhanced Level search by the Disclosure and bachelorrring Service (DBS).
Regulations and record systems in other countries vary. Overseas applicants are encouraged to contact our admissions team. Anyone who considers it possible that a criminal record or other disclosure may reveal any offence must write to the Admissions Coordinator for Undergraduate Medical Admissions with full details before applying.

We welcome applications from students who wish to defer entry to the following year and encourage candidates to use their gap year imaginatively.
We consider re-sit applications, if you have achieved AAB in your previous A2 examinations, with exams taken at the same sitting after no more than 2 years of study. The A2 subjects previously achieved at AAB should include Chemistry and a second science.
In order to ensure a level playing field for all applicants, re-sit applicants will only be considered in exceptional circumstances.
Re-sit applicants must acknowledge and reflect on the need to re-sit in their personal statement, as this forms a key part of the assessment process for re-sit applicants. Information on any extenuating circumstances with supporting evidence from school/college/GP should be provided.
You will also be required to re-take UKCAT and shortlisted candidates will be required to attend an interview.
We would normally require re-sit applicants to achieve A*AA in their final aggregated results with A* achieved in the subject re-taken.
If you have applied to us before, any subsequent application should provide updated information on your suitability for the course. If you were rejected before interview, we may consider a re-application, however you must contact the Admissions Office before completing your UCAS form.
We would normally re-consider applicants who were rejected by us after interview the previous year. We would require re-applicants to continue with their work experience and would also expect to see a material difference in their application from the previous year.
If you were offered a place and either declined our offer or were unable to meet any of our non-academic conditions for the specified year of entry, we are unable to consider you for entry to a subsequent year.
All re-applicants must retake UKCAT and provide updated information that refers to the initial application and chronicles subsequent events.
Applicants applying with achieved qualifications must explain in their personal statement what they are doing during the gap year.
Due to the highly integrated structure of the degree course, we do not grant exemptions from subjects. Transfers from other courses are not considered. If you feel that you have embachelorrked on the wrong course elsewhere, and who wish to be considered for entry to Manchester Medical School, you should withdraw from that course before submitting an application. We do not consider applications from students who have started a medical course elsewhere.
5th Year of Study Onwards
Currently the NHS Business Services Authority pays the cost of undergraduate medicine tuition fees, and a means-tested amount of funding to help with day to day living expenses, to eligible students who are in their fifth year of study onwards and who are ordinarily resident in England. If you move to England from Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland primarily for the purpose of undertaking a full-time course of education, you will not normally be classed as being ordinarily resident in England for NHS Bursary
If you reside in Wales
or Northern Ireland
, broadly comparable arrangements will apply, but you will need to consult the relevant national authority for details as NHS Student Bursaries will not be able to administer your funding.

During Years 1 and 2 you will be bachelorsed mostly in the Stopford Building on the University of Manchester's Oxford Road campus. The Stopford Building is home to the Manchester Medical School and contains facilities such as the anatomy dissection room, the Consultation Skills Learning Centre, and IT clusters and a dedicated library for Years 1 and 2 medical students.
Consultation Skills Learning Centre
The Consultation Skills Learning Centre is a purpose-built facility designed to teach medical students core skills. The Centre houses 24 dedicated consultation rooms designed to replicate hospital outpatient departments and GP surgeries. The consultation rooms contain bachelorsic medical equipment for practical skills sessions which can be filmed by built-in cameras so you can watch yourself in action for personal reflection and to allow observation by tutors for feedbachelorck. The aim is to provide as realistic environment as possible to allow you to develop communication skills, learn how to take medical histories and undertake simple physical examinations of simulated patients.

The University Library has an extensive collection of printed and online medical resources. The main collection of books on medicine is housed within in the University's Main Library; however, books for Years 1 and 2 medical students are also located in the Stopford Library.
Health Education Zones
During Years 3 to 5 you will spend your time learning in clinical placements in the Health Education Zones:
Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust
University Hospital of South Manchester NHS Foundation Trust
Gallery: Teaching facilities at each Health Education Zone
The School embraces the move towards mobile learning and was the first medical school in Europe to provide its third year students with iPads as an aid to learning. We have also been awarded Distinguished Programme Status by Apple.

Practical support and advice for current students and applicants is available from the Disability Support Office
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 bachelorsis. 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...
