Why study this degree at UCL?
The programme’s students benefit from the opportunity to become closely involved in the clinical care of patients, taking full part in the processes of examination, diagnosis, assessment, investigations and the prevention and management of disease.
They will also be exposed to the research activities of the unit and gain significant experience in translational research design and delivery.
