Medical Programme

Welcome to the David Game College Medical & Life Sciences Programme. This course is a joint venture between David Game College and Clinical Network International (CNI) run by Dr A. Iqbal, a medical consultant at the Medway Maritime Hospital in the United Kingdom.

University admissions are fiercely competitive. Successful candidates need to have an outstanding academic record as well as demonstrate exceptional commitment when applying for courses such as medicine, dentistry, pharmacy and scientific related disciplines. A specialist course is being offered to boost your chances of securing your first choice medical or dental school.

In addition to core medical courses, the programme also prepares students who wish to study a life science subject at leading universities such as Oxford, Cambridge, Imperial, and UCL. Entry standards for life sciences subjects into Oxbridge, Imperial and UCL can be high as those for medical studies.

The Medical Programme also advises on preparing students who may wish to apply to Medical Schools in the United States, in particular Ivy League universities such as Harvard, John Hopkins, Stanford and Yale. Naturally, these institutions are extremely competitive and command significant financial resources. David Game College has experience of placing students in foreign universities, especially in the United States.

Key Features of the Medical and Life Sciences Programme

The programme has two elements:

  1. Core clinical: 10 lectures  are delivered over 6 months on medical topics that also related to the specification
  2. Life sciences: 10 lectures on medically-related topics and other interesting areas of life sciences, such as cell biology & molecular biology, genomics, neurology, immunology and parasitology.

The course will also run special seminars on:

Course Benefits
This specialist course has been designed to boost your examination grades, deepen your knowledge of various clinical specialities, re-enforce A-Level knowledge and serves as evidence to demonstrate your interest in pursuing medical and scientific careers.

You will be taught how to exercise your knowledge which will prove vastly beneficial at interviews and higher study. Clinical facets of these topics will be taught to improve your knowledge of human health and scientific advancements. You will gain an insight into cutting edge knowledge and interact with academic papers which will place you at an advantageous position when applying for university.


Cardiovascular science is a major component of your A-Level syllabus. Cardiovascular disease is a major cause of morbidity and mortality and a source of huge scientific interest and research. In this session, you will be taught:

  • Anatomy of the heart
  • The cardiac cycle
  • The electrocardiogram (ECG)
  • Arrhythmias
  • Ischaemic heart disease
  • Atherosclerosis
  • Valvular disease
  • Key cutting-edge research papers in the field of cardiology


Respiratory physiology is frequently examined in A-level examinations and is an important clinical topic as more and more people are affected by respiratory conditions in the UK. In this session, you will be taught:

  • Respiratory anatomy and physiology
  • Lung function tests including tidal volumes, vital capacity
  • Asthma
  • COPD
