What's a degree in Medicine with a Foundation Year?

In this article, we will discuss a study of medicine with a foundation year / Foundation year in Medicine, and the correct way to make it to medical school and become a certified medical doctor.

Over the pas few years we have been seen an increasing number of applicants to a medical degree in different parts of the world and with many different universities.

A medical degree may sound really attractive to many students, especially when we have on TV and on main stream media, very popular shows such as Chicago Med or the Good Doctor that depicts doctors in different ER and hospitals as real heroes saving lives and having very good lives and apparently doing very well financially.

Being a medical doctor it is a prestigious profession and if you get to call yourself one day a Dr. you’ll know exactly what we mean with that.

But can anyone really become a medical doctor? – According to King Charles Medical College, the answer is ‘YES’, but not everyone is really willing to go through what it takes to make it to medical school.

A few years ago, many different universities developed the international programs opening doors to literally any student wanting to study for a medical degree even if this one did not have a scientific background. How so? – These international programs are ready to take students who pass successfully an admission criteria process such as a written exam and/or an oral exam without even considering old grades from school or curriculum a student chose while in high school.

This methodology to accept students invited thousands of students from literally every possible country in the world to start a medical degree and to achieve what was before almost an impossible dream.

But despite the good opportunity to enroll in a medical degree, many of these applicants starting to realize they were still failing or not being accepted.

The problem was and still is, that even with good opportunities to enroll in a medical school, the difficulty of acceptance and the difficulty of what doing a medical degree entails did not decrease.

Students were falling and dropping in masses due to lack of preparation for admission exams and for the medical degree as a whole.

When universities realized of this gap which admission criteria vs readiness of students created, they started incorporating Medicine Foundation Year courses in which students were invited to join the university before their medical degree to prepare and pass admission exams.

When we speak about studying medicine foundation year, we are referring to these type of programs in which you can still join and come as ready as you can ever be to be successful during your medical degree.
