Would you like to learn about the care of seriously ill or injured patients before they reach hospital?

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

Queen Mary University of 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.
