<p>Barts has an international reputation for excellence in research in the following fields of research: cancer, cardiovascular disease, inflammation, endocrinology/ metabolism, immunology and infectious diseases, genomics, neuroscience, gastroenterology, epidemiology and primary care. It is part of the Queen Mary University of London and was founded in 1995 through the amalgamation of the London Hospital Medical College and the Medical College of St Bartholomew&rsquo;s Hospital (currently the oldest hospital in the UK). Famous alumni include William Harvey (formulated and proved the theory that blood circulates around the body) and James Parkinson (eponymous discoverer of Parkinson&rsquo;s disease).</p>

<p>The medical course structure is integrated, with elements of problem-based learning to encourage independent thinking. The first two years are devoted to systems of the body, and mechanisms of disease, while the last three years are primarily reserved for clinical attachments. The central London campus includes modern, state-of-the-art buildings as well as beautiful traditional structures, such as the Whitechapel Library, a former church. There is early patient contact on the course and the wide catchment area, encompassing both East London and the City of London, means that there is a large diversity of patients and conditions. The medical school scored 96% in overall satisfaction in the National Student Survey in 2015.</p>

<p>Barts and the London also offers a 5-year medical degree course in Malta, where students can complete their Foundation doctor training. Students at Barts will have the opportunity to do an intercalated degree, and as part of their training they will complete thirteen student selected components, which enables them to explore, in depth, particular areas of Medicine which interest them. They will shadow an FY1 doctor as part of their final year, as well as completing a medical elective (which can be in the UK or abroad).</p>
