University of Plymouth intercalation

It’s a really unique course – there’s not anything like it anywhere else in the UK. You’re in the clinical environment most of the time, normally five days a week.

Joshua Masheder - BSc (Hons) Urgent and Emergency Care (Intercalated) graduate

"Emergency care and critical care are both fields which can be the difference between life and death, but as students we have little exposure whilst at medical school. The opportunity this course and the BSc (Hons) Critical Care (Intercalated) course gives you to become integrated alongside some of the best medical teams in some of the busiest hospitals in the UK provides opportunities you will not gain elsewhere. Alongside the clinical placements I have been able to work in my field of interest, explore pre-hospital care and be involved in cutting edge research to mould out future NHS. Plymouth and its intercalation courses offer a unique starting block for anyone interested in emergency care, pre-hospital care and anaesthetics, not forgetting paediatrics and psychiatry all of which stand you above colleagues in experience, knowledge and exposure."

Student insight - Owen Hibberd

The nine month clinical placement provides a real insight into working life in the emergency department. There is flexibility to see patients in all areas of the department.
