Welcome to the University of St Andrews Medical School website for external tutors. This site will allow you to access current relevant teaching documents, timetables and necessary admin forms. It will provide short biographies and links to University teaching staff you may meet in the clinical environment and introduce you to the background administrative staff.
The three year course in St Andrews leads to a BSc Honours degree in medical science after which our students move on to a partner medical school to complete a further 3 years training and completion of a M.B.ChB. The course follows an integrated spiral curriculum closely interweaving the strands of structure and function of the body with a clinical strand. This format highlights to the students the relevance of the basic sciences, clinical and communication skills training to the practice of medicine. After graduating from St Andrews the student will enter the third year at their partner medical school.
