One of the most important skills you’ll need to develop is teamwork and the ability to communicate well with colleagues, patients and relatives.Medicine is a tough profession: people who are unwell are not always easy to handle – they may, understandably, be scared or irritable.Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry brings together two venerable teaching institutions: St Bartholomew’s Hospital, which dates back to 1123, and The London Hospital Medical College, founded in 1785, the oldest medical school in England and Wales.

The five year programme leading to Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery is designed to give you appropriate knowledge and understanding of medical, scientific and clinical principles so that you are able to apply them to the prevention, cure and alleviation of disease.

Key features of the curriculum include: We have a highly developed network for pastoral and academic support.

Their knowledge and clinical skills are enhanced by working alongside clinical teams both in the hospital and also within community placements.

This enables them to expand and apply the knowledge and skills acquired during Phase 1.

A major redevelopment of the Royal London Hospital is complete and includes London’s leading trauma and emergency care centre, one of Europe’s largest renal services and one of the UK’s biggest paediatric services.

We pride ourselves on being a friendly School, with excellent staff-student relationships.

The curriculum closely follows the recommendations set out in Tomorrow's Doctors (General Medical Council: September 2009).

The curriculum is taught in a series of modules which are based on BODY SYSTEMS which, in turn, encompass various scientific and medical THEMES.

You will be taught by experts in their field who are passionately engaged with their subject.

The programme places considerable emphasis on developing your expertise in a whole range of practical areas, including clinical, communication, observation, team work and management skills.

Each system is visited a minimum of three times during the programme.
