There is substantial variation in the extent to which these changes have evolved and in many respects there is greater choice between courses than ever before. Diversity of approach is a strength of the UK system: “You pay your money and take your choice”. The courses at Oxford, Cambridge, and St Andrews remain more traditional in structure if not in subject matter and teaching methods. These courses maintain a distinct separation between the more scientific and the more clinical, although they have moved away to some extent from separate subjects towards systems-based teaching of the sciences and have introduced reference to clinical relevance; their philosophy is that it is still valid to study in depth the sciences related to medicine (anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, pharmacology, and pathology) as disciplines important in their own right, primarily as tools of intellectual development and scientific education rather than of vocational equipment.

Most medical schools, however, are making increasing use of associated district hospitals and primary care centres, such as general practice surgeries, in surrounding suburban and rural areas. This allows for a broader and more balanced experience and exposure to different medical conditions and practices. If you wish to stay near home it is worth remembering that medical school accommodation may be limited, and consequently you may be given low priority and find yourself having to live at home.
