University of Birmingham

Everyone involved with medicine will come across some aspect of international health in their career, whether they will recognise it as such is less certain.

This degree can benefit anyone going into medicine, whether, for example, they intend to pursue a career in surgery in the UK or wish to work at an international level. The course will introduce you to the great breadth and depth of international health, though it cannot hope to cover all that makes up international health. This might fuel a career in international health, some time working abroad, or it might just make you a better doctor in this country.

Entry requirements

Applications for this programme will be accepted from students wishing to intercalate after year 3 or 4 of their medical studies, or year 2 for Dental students. Students must have obtained >60% in the second year of MBChB or BDS to be eligible. Applicants will be ranked on their year 2 mark and on their answers to the questions on the application form.

Please note: students who have failed to achieve 60% may still apply, but are required to demonstrate a significant upward academic trajectory or excellence in specific areas related to the proposed intercalation.
