Access to Medicine is an intensive science‐based one year full time course tailored to the requirements of a medical degree, designed to provide an alternative route for non-traditional students into medical training.
It is a course for mature students who, having achieved in other areas, now wish to retrain as doctors. These include:
- those with experience in other health-related professions
- those whose initial career choice has proved unsatisfying and who wish to change their field of employment to the health care sector
- those who have previously studied in higher education, but whose studies did not constitute a suitable preparation for medical training
