The Faculty of Medicine encompasses one of the largest medical schools in the UK. It occupies several major campuses in west London and enjoys close collaborative academic and clinical ties with the associated hospitals on these sites. The close research and clinical relationships with our associated NHS Trust provide every opportunity for the development of a culture of translational research.
Over 1,000 students are currently studying for either a research degree (PhD, MPhil, MD(Res)) or following one of the many taught Master's courses within the Faculty. Although many students have clinical training, at least as many are basic scientists with BSc degrees in subjects such as molecular biology, biochemistry, zoology or microbiology, who share an interest in work at the interface of basic science and clinical medicine.
