Intercalated medical degrees

Discover whether an intercalated degree could be for you. 

It involves taking a year out of your medical or dental degree to study for an additional degree. Your course will be one year longer, but you will end up with two degrees, one in medicine or dentistry and another degree, eg BSc or BMedSci. Consult individual medical and dental schools to find out if intercalation is possible, and at what stage this can be done.
