    I have researched well enough only the med schools I applied to this year, so can only comment on those:

    UCL - offers an MBPhD
    St George's - teaches using both PBL and CBL
    Cardiff - clinical placements in rural Wales
    Bart's - has the oldest hospital in the UK

    Let's have a full list of med schools and characteristics that make them stand out.

    Oh well, than we need to find something else that makes the two medical schools unique.

    Cardiff - Rural Health Day for Year 2 students
    The Welsh Ambulance Service simulates a serious road traffic accident in an isolated area, providing students with valuable experience in the challenges emergency services face in rural communities.

    St George's - 24 Hours in A&E is located at St George's Hospital

    Can you tell me something about Swansea medical school?

    Yeah sure, it's awesome! I'll leave you to do your own research...it's an important skill for a future doctor

    Btw, there are other schools which offer MBPhDs...and that is still not unique to Cardiff. If you're interested in Swansea, I post almost exclusively about it so look through my posts.

    UEA 3rd year here

    We have a PBL-based course and the thing I like best is our early patient contact starting from week 1 of medical school!

    Instead of doing first half of the degree in lectures and then clinical years, we cover a body system such as orthopaedics or cardiology and then get a 4 week placement at the end of the module to see everything we've learnt in actual practice (through ward rounds, clinics, surgery). We also have primary care every week so as we cover different topics of the module (e.g. heart failure, coronary artery disease) we get to take histories and examine patients who have had these conditions.
