About the School

Imperial’s Faculty of Medicine is one of the largest in Europe, with medical campuses across north and west London.

The School of Medicine is responsible for undergraduate teaching within the Faculty of Medicine.

We have excellent links to, and partnerships with, a wide range of National Health Service (NHS) Trusts, hospitals and clinics both in and outside of London. This access to a large and diverse patient population enables our students to gain clinical experience from the very start of their studies.

Our teaching is underpinned by clinical expertise and internationally competitive research. It also draws upon a wide range of teaching from colleagues within the Faculty of Medicine and in other departments at Imperial. This ensures that our graduates have the fullest opportunity to acquire the scientific knowledge, clinical skills, professional attitude and personal values required for the care of patients in the NHS, and for research.

Developing key non-clinical skills in areas such as communication, medical ethics and law, and information technology is a core part of the student experience.

In addition, students who do not currently hold a BSc in a science subject will have the chance to develop their research skills and scientific knowledge during the BSc year of the MBBS/BSc course.
