It is also home to some of the best medical schools in the world with great reputations for world-class research, such as Oxford and Cambridge. The National Health Service (NHS) is one of the largest publicly-funded health services in the world, and that leads to all the UK universities have close ties with different hospitals across the country. The NHS is involved in the UK medical education system as students spend two to three years learning within its facilities and from the staff. 
Studying medicine in the UK is organized by many schools as a 5-year program for medicine, dentistry, and pharmacy. Graduate entry medicine programs are available for graduate students dreaming to become Doctors.
