Course content

Our intercalated BSc in Pre-Hospital Medicine gives current medical students specialist training in this innovative and growing field, recognised as a subspecialty by the General Medical Council.

Barts and The London offers the UK’s first intercalated degree in this area, in partnership with the Institute of Pre-hospital Care at London’s Air Ambulance.

You’ll build the scientific knowledge, practical skills and professional attitudes required for pre-hospital medicine. Modules cover pathophysiological processes and anatomy, resuscitation and trauma science – and the non-technical and teamworking skills to bring it all together safely and effectively.

You’ll complete shifts with pre-hospital medicine providers, engage with the emergency services, and hear from leading experts in the underpinning scientific fields. You will also attend large sporting events and other topic-related visits and field trips.

You'll undertake a supervised research project, using either a scientific or social science approach.
