The UCL MBPhD programme was set up by Professors AW Segal and N Woolf in 1994. The aim of the programme was (and remains) to foster academically-minded medical students who wish in the future to combine research with clinical medicine. The programme enables students to intercalate a PhD into the UCL M.B. B.S.
Introduction by the Head of the Medical School
With the rapid growth in knowledge about biological processes and disease and the availability of increasingly sophisticated technologies there has never been a more exciting time to consider a clinical academic career. It is increasingly recognised that coupling basic science skills with profound clinical awareness is likely to result in more rapid advance in the development of new diagnostics and treatments.
The MB PhD programme allows a selected group of students to develop their basic science skills from BSc to PhD whilst completing their undergraduate medical education. It is a model that is well developed in the USA and has assisted in the emergence of US leadership in clinical science. We believe that our programme is as exciting as any available internationally since UCL has an enormous breadth of research in life sciences and a clinical science environment that is both diverse and of high quality. Our Research Institutes and Clinical Faculty integrate basic and clinical sciences and offer unparalleled opportunities for research training. This is an ideal way to prepare for a clinical academic career. I commend this opportunity to students who have already developed a strong research interest.
