Medicine at Queen's

Discover the opportunities waiting for you as a student at our Medical School in Queen's University Belfast.


Queen’s is an exciting place to study medicine with our students experiencing clinical practice in a variety of hospitals, general practices and healthcare settings throughout Northern Ireland from first year onwards.

The School of Medicine, Dentistry and Biomedical Sciences has close ties with the Northern Ireland community as part of its educational, research and outreach programmes. Our ‘Patients as Partners’ make a valuable contribution to the education of medical students, through their participation in the selection of medical students to the programme, teaching sessions, as well as assessments.

As medical practice changes, so our course has changed to meet the challenges of 21st Century healthcare.

Medicine at Queen's Virtual Information Session

For Students and Career Teacher’s interested in September 2021 entry

Wednesday 7 October, 2-5pm (BST)

We realise this has been a difficult year for students applying for medicine for 2021 entry. To help with any queries or uncertainties you may have at this time QUB is providing an opportunity for all pupils and careers teachers to link in on Wednesday afternoon for an informal information session hosted by;

  • Dr Inez Cooke – Academic Lead for Admissions to Medicine
  • Mr Liam  Barton – Medicine Admissions Manager

They will be present throughout the afternoon providing an information and Q & A session.  At 3pm we will be joined by current medical students so applicants can chat directly with students who have been through the application process themselves and ask them questions about first year of our medical degree.
