Graduate Entry Medicine: How much time will I spend out of Oxford for hospital attachments?
Clinical attachments at hospitals outside Oxford provide a valuable teaching experience: the student numbers on each firm are often smaller than in Oxford, and there is usually a wider clinical experience of common illnesses. Over the four years, there are two or three such attachments of between four and six weeks each. The clinical teaching in the first year will also be in hospitals and GP clinics outside Oxford (for one day each week). In addition, there are periods when out-of-town rotations are offered as options during particular clinical attachments.
