Fantastic course here in Southampton. Great teaching and fantastic hospitals within the Wessex deanery where you go for placement. Integrated course, which means a mixture of lectures, tutorials and placement in years 1 and 2, and then placement after that. Another perk of studying medicine at Southampton is that you do a BMedSci project in your third year, which you would normally have to take another year of study to do. The medicine course is taught through systems, which I though was great as it is a logical way to study the body. This means you study everything on the heart in one go, everything on the respiratory system in one go etc. As in, the anatomy of it, the physiology, pathology etc.
