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 two hospitals lie in very different parts of London, the City and the East End, meaning that you will be exposed to a greater diversity of people and their problems than at almost any other school. This combination of the scientific excellence mentioned above, and the unmatched medical and dental opportunities that flow from our location, means that we are in an unrivalled position to offer you the very best experience as a student, shaping the sort of dentist you will become and the rest of your life.
Our curriculum is modern, integrated and well paced, and our location in east London means that you'll serve a population of great diversity and encounter a wide range of disease, including some of the more unusual oral cancers.
With around 70 students per year, we are still a relatively small dental school. Our size and location mean that there is a strong sense of community and that we are never short of patients. Dental students also have the opportunity to study at a variety of outreach clinics, gaining experience within different clinical settings.
The Dental School contains a clinical skills laboratory, which closely simulates the real clinical experience and is an invaluable learning facility, helping new students prepare for patient care work. You will also be able to work in our fantastic new outreach clinics at Barkantine, near Canary Wharf, Southend-on-Sea and the newest clinic Sir Ludwig Guttmann centre in the Olympic park.
Scientific basis of clinical practice (Year 1)
We'll introduce you to basic biological principles and help you to develop the study skills you'll need throughout the programme.
dental materials and their application
the body's main organs and systems
the effects of illness on people and their families
the impact of environmental and social factors on health
the normal biological structure and function of cells
We'll assess your progress throughout the programme, using:
continuous assessment – including in-course examinations, independent projects and success in student-selected components
examinations – where you'll demonstrate the knowledge, skills and attitudes you've developed throughout the programme
formative assessments, which do not count towards your final marks but allow us to identify whether you need additional help with your studies
Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCEs) to assess your clinical and communication skills. You'll be assessed on your ability to interact with clinical simulations, accomplish tasks and communicate or interact with both real and simulated patients.
