UCL MBPhD Course Summary
In the course, the PhD is sandwiched between the first and latter two years of clinical training. An introduction to clinical medicine is essential, as it focusses thoughts on potential translational benefits. Students will enter the clinical part of the MBBS programme (Year 4: Integrated Clinical Care) with their contemporaries, following their iBSc. After completion of MBBS Year 4, MBPhD students will divert to research studies for a period of three or four years. During the PhD, a regular clinical teaching programme keeps students’ clinical skills and knowledge up-to-date. Re-entry into the MBBS for the two remaining years is contingent on submission of the PhD.
The PhD research can be undertaken either within UCL
(which includes many world class institutes including the Institute of Child
Health, the Institute of Neurology at Queen Square and the Institute of
Ophthalmology at Moorfields), or alternatively students can choose projects at
the National Institute for Medical Research at Mill Hill or the London Research
Institute of Cancer Research UK. The latter two will soon be
combined to form the Francis Crick Institute, led by Sir Professor Paul Nurse.
This new institute will provide world-class scientific training, second to
