Course Summary:
Study an innovative curriculum at a top medical school, and work with a diverse range of patients and clinical issues at some of London’s greatest hospitals. Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry is one of the oldest medical schools in the UK. We draw on our long experience to provide the best in modern medical training, with high-tech teaching facilities, and aim to prepare you for life as a qualified doctor. Our strong core curriculum will equip you with clinical, communication, observation, teamwork and management skills. The curriculum is underpinned by research, linking your learning to the work of the faculty, from the laboratory bench to new drugs to public health interventions. With less emphasis on traditional lectures, problem-based learning in small groups encourages you to take an independent approach to clinical scenarios. You’ll start seeing patients from your very first term, and progress to hospital and community placements. You can follow your own interests by choosing student-selected components, from basic sciences to clinical specialities, community and public health, medical ethics and law.
Modules:
YEARS 1 - 2 Phase 1 (Years 1 and 2) You’ll take five systems-based modules and three student-selected components in each of the two years of Phase 1. Modules are based on body systems, which in turn encompass various scientific and medical themes. Each system is visited a minimum of three times during the programme. We introduce the basic biological sciences and address key topics, including: normal biological structure and function of cells, organs and body systems the effect of illness on people and their families the impact of environmental and social factors on health. Student-selected components (SSCs) SSCs allow you to build a portfolio of core competencies while focusing on topics of particular interest. Some are carried out in blocks of two to five weeks, while others run throughout the year.
Assessment Methods:
Your progress is monitored through a combination of continuous assessment and regular examinations, with final exams each year. A scheme of merits and distinctions recognises excellent or outstanding performance across each sector of the curriculum. Prizes reward special ability both in the main examinations and in specialist subjects.

    Queen Mary is a great university, with a good balance between studies and life. The community there is very friendly too and international students especially should settle in quite quickly.
