The Medicine Maxfax Entry Programme MBBS is a four-year medical degree designed specifically for qualified dentists who are registered with the UK General Dental Council and intend to pursue a career in oral and maxillofacial surgery. This course has been accredited by the General Medical Council (GMC). This Primary Medical Qualification entitles the holder to apply to the GMC for registration to practise medicine in the UK. The MBBS curriculum is divided into three ‘Stages’. Students of the Maxfax Entry Programme will not take Stage 1 and will join the other medical students at Stage 2. Stage 2 brings together science and clinical practice in blocks organised around the human life-cycle and common pathological processes. It focuses on the care of patients with common conditions in a range of clinical settings. Students will also follow patients for prolonged periods of time to learn how to deliver whole-person care. This stage is underpinned by study in biomedical and population sciences. Stage 3 is oriented towards future practice, and includes the opportunity to undertake elective study abroad. Students will also conduct quality improvement projects and develop skills to transform patient and population health at home and abroad. Inter-professional training and increasingly realistic simulation are important parts of the curriculum.
