The Cambridge Summer College is a two-week university preparation programme in the beautiful city of Cambridge. Participants on this programme will live and study at Clare College, Cambridge and select two subjects to explore in depth for the duration of the course.

Our Medicine course introduces students to some of the fundamental elements of the first stage of an Oxbridge clinical medicine degree.

Students explore the science that underpins medicine, from genetics to anatomy. They also have the opportunity to develop their knowledge on a practical level during their time in the lab.

As well as covering the key scientific material, students spend time discussing controversial ethical debates that dominate Medical discourse. Students also have the opportunity to meet practising doctors and clinicians to learn about the reality of life after graduating.

Topics include:
• Medical genetics and mutations

• Antibiotics and antibiotic resistance
• Cancer
• Evidence-based medicine
