By studying for a Medical Degree at the UEA you will bring about huge change in your life and in the lives of many other people. Being a doctor is a privileged position which has at its heart a real and deep-seated vocation to help people.

It’s a demanding, challenging, but very rewarding profession – and not one to be entered into lightly. You will have a long-held ambition to become a doctor and it is this ambition that will motivate and sustain you through the years of academic and clinical study you’ll complete before you can take your place as a competent physician.

Alongside excellent clinical skills, modern doctors must be able to communicate effectively so they can relate to patients and their loved ones with compassion and understanding. You will also be working within multi disciplinary teams – so a co-operative and approachable attitude are key to your success.

The career choices for a doctor are endless. But wherever you choose work, as a GP, in a hospital, or in research, the patient will always be at the core of what you do.
