Looking to study medicine or already applied and excited to get started? Look no further! Besides IB tuition, How To IB has medical school preparation classes available, open to IB, A-Level, and Higher students!

One to one or small group tuition can help you get ahead within the field of medicine. Whether you are wanting to find out if studying medicine is for you, or already wanting to get ahead on studying medicine at university, these classes will be great for you!

In this course you will learn the basics of major medical fields like Cardiology, Neurology and Endocrinology (the heart, the brain and hormones) in several online sessions (small group, or private; more details below). We will touch on physiology (how the body normally works), pathophysiology (what goes wrong in disease) and pharmacology (how we treat it). At the end of the course there is an optional assessment you can complete to receive your certificate.

This course aims to provide you with teaching in the style that it will be delivered at medical school, and serve as a taster!

The group course will normally run over the summer (July/August). Due to the high demand for the summer course, an additional (shorter) group course will start running in February/March (exact dates tbc). This extra series will be 4 weeks in length, with a once-weekly session and assignment. The programme can be found below. 75% attendance and completion of final assignment is required to receive your certificate.

We currently no longer take sign-ups for the summer course. The spring course sign-ups will go live again in December/January.

Programme of the 4-week course starting in Feb/March:

Week 1 – Respiratory Medicine
Week 2 – Endocrinology
Week 3 – Paediatrics
Week 4 – Emergency Medicine

Each week you will be expected to attend a 1-hour lecture/tutorial. Every week there will be a short assignment to complete (which will take about 30 minutes) and a final assignment at the end of the course, for which a 60% pass mark is required to receive your certificate. The assignment will combine knowledge covered over the weeks and most importantly, will give you an idea of what to expect when you study medicine.

Programme of the 5-week summer course:

Week 1 – Clinical skills
Week 2 – Respiratory
Week 3 – Endocrinology
Week 4 – Orthopaedics
Week 5 – Gastroenterology

Each week you will be expected to attend 2 x 1-hour lecture/tutorial (10 in total). Every week there will be a short assignment to complete (which will take about 30 minutes) and a final assignment at the end of the course, for which a 60% pass mark is required to receive your certificate. The assignment will combine knowledge covered over the weeks and most importantly, will give you an idea of what to expect when you study medicine. There will be a cost associated with this course, further details will be published in May when sign-ups for the summer course open.
