The School of Public Health provides a range of teaching across the whole of the undergraduate medical course (MBBS) and for the BSc in Biomedical Science. We deliver our courses via a range of methods including small group teaching, lectures, tutorials, e-learning and one-to-one clinical teaching, and are intentionally well integrated with the rest of the course.
We pride ourselves on our innovative approach to teaching. Examples include an integrated dermatology course, which aims to give year five medical students an improved, holistic experience of dermatology across both primary and secondary care, and a pilot project to partner medical students with nursing students to deliver a Health Coaching intervention to patients at high risk of hospital admission in North West London.
School of Public Health Undergraduate
LMAP and short course
Lifestyle and Medicine Prevention
Lifestyle Medicine and Prevention is an innovative pair of modules delivered for first and second year medical students at Imperial College School of Medicine. The LMAP modules have been developed by the Undergraduate Public Health Education team within Imperial’s School of Public Health. Across the two years, they account for over 350 live teaching sessions every year delivered to more than 700 medical students.
Global Health Short Course on the BMB programme
Global Health is taught as an optional short two-week module in the third year of the BSc Medical Biosciences degree programme. The module offers a unique opportunity for undergraduate students to be introduced to a range of fundamental concepts in global health and epidemiology, including the epidemiology of communicable and non-communicable diseases (NCDs). Core epidemiological study designs are introduced with emphasis on their relative strengths and limitations and the role they play in steering evidence-based Global Health policy.
