Undergraduate Medicine: A Regional Partnership

Undergraduate medical education is delivered in the North East through a partnership between Newcastle and Durham Universities, together with a region-wide NHS infrastructure of acute hospitals, general practices and public health units, serving a large patient population of 3.5 million. 

Through this exciting partnership, the 5-year medical programme is delivered in two phases. Phase I of the programme (2 years), is offered by both universities, while Phase II (3 years) provides clinical experience in a wide range of NHS hospital and community settings across the region, under the management of Newcastle University.

Medicine at Durham University

Phase I of the degree is the element you may choose to study at Durham University. You will be based in the School of Medicine, Pharmacy and Health at the Queen's Campus, Stockton-on-Tees. It is two years long and establishes the essential knowledge base for medicine in a clinical context. At the end of Phase I you will be integrated with students from Newcastle University and allocated to one of four regional clusters of teaching hosptials (Clinical Base Units) for twelve months of clinical experience - the first part of Phase II.
