Application to Cambridge Clinical School
Please allow me to explain my situation first: I'm originally an undergraduate medical student from Imperial College, and having finished my 4th year of studies there (earning me an intercalated BSc in Medical Science with Neuroscience), I'm currently undertaking a PhD at Oxford, as part of Imperial's MB/PhD scheme.
The current plan is for me to return to Imperial after 3 years (once my PhD is done) to finish my remaining 2 years of medical training.
And I'm aware that several London schools have this "Metropolitan Oxbridge Common Admissions Group (MOCAG)" agreement with Oxbridge due to high number of Oxbridge students having to transfer to a different clinical school due to a restricted number of places.
But from what I've been told, Cambridge Clinical School has accepted students from London in the past, so I was wondering if it were still possible for me to apply to Cambridge for Clinical Medicine once I'm done with my PhD at Oxford instead of going back to Imperial?
In this case I'd be spending one more year than at Imperial, but I very much prefer the town of Cambridge as opposed to London, so I wouldnt mind spending one extra year training.
Is this possible at all? Does Cambridge Clinical School consider applicants from Imperial? If yes, what are the procedures for applying, and what sort of things are required for admission? Would my PhD help?
