UCL Medical School


About Us

UCL has educated doctors since 1834 and the medical school sits in the heart of London. Working closely with several major teaching hospitals it provides a truly world class medical education.   

Many UCL Medical School alumni have gone on to become high-profile figures and leaders of the medical profession across the globe. The current Presidents of the Royal College of Physicians, the Royal College of Surgeons and the Chair of the General Medical Council are our alumni. 

UCL Medical School is currently ranked 7th in the world in the QS World University Rankings (2022) and UCL has been ranked 8th for 2022 with subject rankings to be announced.
