Kings College London Medicine Course Structure

King's College London Medical School's course is divided into three ‘Stages’ with an intercalation year between Stages 2 and 3. Although we offer four entry routes into Medicine, all our students follow the same core MBBS curriculum. 

Stage 1 

Provides you with a foundation in biomedical sciences and population sciences, along with the skills to begin to integrate them with clinical practice.

Stage 2 

Brings together science and clinical practice in blocks organised around the human life-cycle and common pathological processes. It focuses on the care of patients with common conditions in a range of clinical settings. You will also follow patients for prolonged periods of time to learn how to deliver whole-person care. 

Stage 3

Is oriented towards future practice, and includes the opportunity to undertake elective study abroad. You will also conduct quality improvement projects and develop skills to transform patient and population health at home and abroad. Inter-professional training and increasingly realistic simulation are important parts of the curriculum.
