St. George’s University of London

St George's, University of London (legal name St George's Hospital Medical School, informally St George's or SGUL) is a Medical School located in Tooting in South London and is a constituent college of the University of London.

Originally set up in 1733 next to Hyde Park Corner (now the site of The Lanesborough hotel), in central London, the college was transferred to its current site, Tooting in South London in 1980, where it shares a site with St George's Healthcare NHS Trust. Following Quality Assurance Agency inspections St George's gained a score of 23 out of 24 for its teaching of medicine the highest of any of the London medical schools. The inspections report was published in January 2000 and the course, curriculum and teaching methods at St George's have changed since then. In recent years, St George's has expanded beyond its medical schools roots. Alongside its medical course it now runs a Biomedical Sciences course, which has expanded to meet demand in the last 5 years from an initial intake of 30, to 150 students. There are now more places for Undergraduate Biomedical Science students than 5-Year Medical students. In partnership with Kingston University, the Faculty of Health and Social Care Sciences has moved St George's into other areas including Nursing, Physiotherapy, Paramedic Science and Radiography. The Faculty has been congratulate for its high teaching standards, employment rates and cutting edge research in the Social Sciences. St George's was also the first institution in the United Kingdom to offer a four-year graduate entry Medicine degree based on the program from Flinders University[6] with which it has an exchange program. The first intake was in 2000 with 35 students and the course has since been emulated by many other universities. Entry to the course is highly competitive with candidates being required to sit the GAMSAT as part of the application process. Most recently St George's, along with other London medical schools, has been the setting for new television drama Vital Signs. In 2008, St George's announced that it planned to merge with Royal Holloway to form a single institution within the University of London. The merger was called off in a joint statement by the two colleges' principals on 25 September 2009. St George's intends to keep working with Royal Holloway in the field of health and social care along with its well-established Joint Faculty with Kingston University. St George's, Kingston University and Royal Holloway will continue to collaborate in the field of health and social care as part of the existing Swan (South West London Academic Network) healthcare alliance.

St George's campus is located in the Tooting area of south-west London, and is co-located with St George's Hospital.

St. George's uses the problem based learning (PBL) based teaching method, first developed by McMaster University Medical School in Canada in the 1960s. St George's also uses dissection from the first year. Clinical teaching occurs mainly at the St. George's Hospital.
