Imperial College London medicine 5 year

MBBS/BSc Medicine

Achieve both an MBBS and BSc qualification in this dual award degree, with direct contact with patients from the very start.

Overview

Imperial’s Faculty of Medicine is one of the largest in Europe, with medical campuses across north and west London and partnerships with a wide range of NHS Trusts, hospitals and clinics.

This access to a very large and diverse patient population enables you to gain clinical experience from your very first term, with placements carefully selected to give you a broad and balanced clinical learning experience.

Our teaching is enriched by our internationally competitive research and clinical expertise, so you’ll be learning at the very cutting edge of the subject. We deliver the course through a range of innovative and traditional teaching methods, including lectures, computer workshops, laboratory classes and problem-based learning.

The first two years of the degree focus on the scientific basis of medicine and the foundations of clinical practice.

Your third year will consist of three 10-week clinical attachments, which may be at any of the hospitals or Teaching General Practices associated with Imperial. You continue to study the systems and topics component of the course via a programme of live lectures and interactive online learning delivered alongside the clinical attachments.

During your fourth year you will work towards the BSc by completing a series of modules and a supervised research project or specialist course in a scientific/medical subject of your choice. This gives you the chance to develop your scientific knowledge and research skills.

Year five includes a dedicated pathology course followed by a variety of clinical specialties, while your final year will include a range of clinical attachments and work experience alongside specialised study modules and an elective period.
