Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry Talk – Thursday 3 May 2016 from 6-8pm at the Chinese International School

We are pleased to invite you to a Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry talk about studying medicine and dentistry in the UK. The lecture will be given by Professor Kim Piper and will be particularly useful for A level and International Baccalaureate students who are considering applying to a medicine or dentistry programme.

Kim Piper graduated from the London Hospital Dental School, University of London in 1990 and completed a PhD at University College in 1995 and became a member of the Royal College of Surgeons in 1996. Kim has followed a specialist pathway in Oral Pathology receiving FRCPath in 2002, and is an appointed consultant. Within the dental course she has a significant role in the design, teaching and examining of the BDS curriculum and in 2007 completed a MA in Higher and Professional Education from the Institute of Education.  She is currently an external examiner for other universities and is the senior tutor for Dental Admissions.

Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry brings together two venerable teaching institutions: St Bartholomew’s Hospital, which dates back to 1123, and The London Hospital Medical College, founded in 1785, the oldest medical school in England and Wales.

The two hospitals lie in two very different parts of London, the City and the East End, meaning our students are exposed to a greater diversity of people and their problems than at almost any other medical and dental school. We are in an unrivalled position to offer you the very best experience as a student – the experience that will shape what sort of doctor or dentist you will be for the rest of your life

Barts and The London is part of Queen Mary, the only university in London to offer extensive campus-based facilities. This promotes a sense of community and encourages an active social life.

The MBBS 5-year programme in Medicine is designed to equip students with a fundamental knowledge and understanding of medicine, and to develop the skills and attitudes needed in order to apply that knowledge in practice.

The Institute of Dentistry moved to a new £78m dental hospital in April 2014 – the first to be built in the UK for over 40 years.
