This webpage provides an overview of the curriculum updates at BSMS. Students who join BSMS in 2019/20 are the first cohort of the expanded student intake. These students will also be the second cohort to sit the new national Medical Licensing Assessment (MLA) in Year 5.
As a result, we are currently in a period of change at BSMS to get ourselves fully prepared so that we can continue to provide the excellent student experience which keeps us among the top medical schools in the National Student Survey (NSS).
The new GMC Outcomes for Graduates document issued in June 2018 also drives a number of curriculum changes to ensure that our students are ready for the current NHS environment.

We will be enhancing our course in several domains, including:
- Increasing focus on personal and professional development
- Increasing the number and type of settings in which students undertake placements
- Increasing student experience of learning to care for the growing numbers of patients with multiple morbidities and long term physical and mental conditions
- Focusing on the 'care of the unwell patient' as a spiral theme in each year of the course.
Please note that these are subject to change.
