Our Open Days give you the opportunity to look around the campus, meet current medical students and staff, and ask questions about studying here at BSMS.

The main presentations will include an introduction to BSMS, our course structure and student life.

In addition, you will hear from a member of our Anatomy Department on how we teach anatomy and cadaveric dissection here at BSMS and watch a video about our clinical skills teaching.
