University College London

Based in the UCL Institute of Epidemiology and Health Care, the integrated iBSc in Primary Care Research and Clinical Practice is the longest running primary care BSc in the UK. This programme offers a unique combination of ongoing clinical experience (students are attached to a designated general practitioner tutor) and the acquisition of academic skills relevant to a career in clinical medicine.

The programme has been amended for re-launch in September 2020, with an exciting set of brand new and updated compulsory modules:

  • Clinical Practice module, which integrates the experiences of the student in the clinical field with theory and practice in the classroom
  • Research module, which allows students to investigate in depth a topic of their choice in primary care
  • Changing Population Perspectives module, focusing on epidemiological approach to health & social care
  • Critical Appraisal of Primary Care and Paediatric Practice module, which aims to develop students’ knowledge and skills in important areas of clinical management in the primary care setting

In addition to the above, we have a choice of 3 optional modules:

  • Multi-morbidity, exploring core debates and challenges, introducing and critically evaluating how health and social care systems support patients with multiple chronic conditions
  • Digital Health, providing an overview of the opportunities and challenges of digital health
  • Sexual Health, addressing sexual health and wellbeing in primary care
