About the School

At Imperial, we have access to a very large and diverse patient population through the Faculty of Medicine’s links to a wide range of National Health Service (NHS) Trusts, hospitals and clinics both in and outside London. This gives you the chance to gain a variety of clinical experience from the very start of your studies.

The Faculty itself is one of the largest in Europe, with experts at the cutting edge of research that benefits patients and populations worldwide. You have the chance to learn alongside these researchers and clinicians and to undertake your own research under their supervision.

You will enjoy an active community within your own student-led organisation – Imperial College School of Medicine Students’ Union.
