            Studying in York is excellent, as both medical and non-medical students mix really well, allowing your university experience to be rich and diverse. The staff are extremely friendly and keen to help. One of the best parts is that people from all years integrate to form sports teams, organise charity events and Medsoc events, resulting in a very close knit community. To top it all off, you get to live in York, which is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, with an impressive range of places to eat, drink and explore.”

            , BSc. (Hons) in Anatomy

            Intercalating in Anatomy at HYMS was probably one of the best decisions I have made since starting medical school. This went beyond anything that could be experienced at medical school alone. It broadened my mind to new anatomical concepts, morphology in relation to function from an evolutionary as well as a clinical perspective and, most importantly, it provided an opportunity to develop scientific thinking – a skill, I believe, takes years to develop. The BSc. programme at HYMS delivers excellent teaching and an opportunity to use specialised computer programmes to assess skeletal morphological variation.

            A lot of medical schools will talk about early clinical placement and at HYMS they mean early! In the third week of study you will go into clinical placement for the first time and return each week – in first year for half a day and in second year for a whole day a week. Each week you will either be in secondary care in hospitals or specialist clinics, or primary care with a General Practitioner in the community. During clinical placements you meet real patients whose medical needs reflect what you have studied throughout the week. This helps you to grow and develop as a medical student.
