In the Future Doctors course, it’s a junior science course which touches on the idea of ‘What kind of things do doctors do?’ ‘What kind of subjects do you have to be a doctor?’ . Our Oxford and Cambridge courses are much more similar to a taster course of university level Medicine. It covers (very broadly) pre-clinical Medicine subjects (e.g. Anatomy, Pathology, Physiology), as well as some clinical practice (e.g. case studies, suturing workshops, etc.).
The course will push students, but the tutor can modify it based on the class’s comfort with English and capacity to absorb new knowledge. At SBC we do all we can to ensure that our Future Doctors are engaged with their program.
It is advised that participants have at least a B1 level to be able to fully engage in this programme.
Before the summer, your Admissions Manager will send your child(ren) an online placement test to complete. This will help us to ensure that this course is suitable for your child to participate in and benefit from.
To celebrate our students’ achievements we perform a graduation ceremony, during which each student receives a certificate of completion.
Our very own academic team has produced a wide variety of SBC materials for students.
Although students needn’t worry about notebooks and folders, they are recommended to bring their own stationary.
Despite the fact that prereading is not necessary to participate in the course, it would be advantageous for students to review what they have learned this year.
You will need at least five GCSEs (or equivalent) grades 9-7 (A* or A) including English, Maths and Sciences. You will also need three A-Levels (or equivalent, for example, the International Baccalaureate IB) including Biology and Chemistry.
According to the NHS and General Medical Council, it can take up to 16 years to train to become a doctor before qualifying. Five years for your medical degree or six years if you want to study a relevant subject like the History of Medicine as part of an intercalated year. Two years for your post-graduate general medical training foundation programme, and then three years of specialist training for a GP or between five to eight years for other specialities.
The Future Doctors course was the first of its kind and we can say really inspiring course for our daughter. The content of the course, the commitment of lecturers and SBC team was something which will remain in her mind forever. This course certainly has strengthened her selF-confidence and brought inspiration for the future.
