Student Profile Gwenllian Roberts
Graduate Entry Medicine
"I'm on my year long placement in GP. I'm really enjoying being part of the team and assessing patients and seeing them throughout the day. We've also spent a month in hospital seeing the A&E and ITU side of it. This is great as there are certain things you wouldn't see in GP and it's important to get experience of that as well."
Career Opportunities in Graduate Entry Medicine
This course offers you a comprehensive preparation for a rewarding working life as a Foundation Doctor in the NHS and the career beyond. Graduates of the programme may apply for provisional registration with the General Medical Council.
Our Research in Medicine
Within the School of Medical Sciences, we employ state-of-the-art approaches to address basic research questions in medicine and/or develop applications to overcome serious unmet clinical needs. We're ranked 7th in the UK for Research (The Complete University Guide 2021) and we have an overarching aim of improving the patient pathway, either by contributing new insights to fill an important gap in medical knowledge or developing applications which directly contribute to improving health and well-being.
We have a strong focus on cancer research where our research teams are not only exploring the complex processes which result in the development, progression and therapeutic resistance of cancers, but are also developing the basis for new therapies and patient monitoring technologies. The cancer research teams are housed in the North West Cancer Research Institute, which integrates us with the wider research networks in other leading research intense universities world-wide and health providers, to ensure that our research is relevant to the needs of cancer patients within Wales and beyond.
