The Barts and The London Medical School – Malta
Our state-of-the-art, purpose-built school will be on the Gozo campus next to Gozo General Hospital in Victoria. While the main Barts building is being completed teaching will take place at The Sir Michelangelo Refalo Sixth Form Gozo in the main town of Victoria.
Once completed, our school will be the hub for all your classroom-based teaching and your practical skills sessions. It will also house lecture theatres, seminar rooms, clinical and communications skills labs, library/IT suites and space for private study with the latest learning support technology.
Anatomy and Physiology
Every student on our MBBS programme will have the opportunity to study dissection over the course of their degree. Our innovative Anatomy Centre, adjacent to the Gozo Hospital, will provide the space and resources for you to undertake your anatomy practical’s, while in the Learning Landscapes Room, tutors will lead demonstrations using anatomical specimens and models, clinical images, videos of surgical and endoscopic procedures and specialised computer imaging. Displays will also allow you to refresh your anatomical knowledge before exams or assessments.
Clinical and Communications Skills Centre
We will also have an exceptional Clinical and Communications Skills Centre, designed by our Barts GMC-commended London Team, which is designed to allow you to practise clinical methods and practical skills using the latest patient simulators, models, video recording and mock ward settings.
Your communications skills will be developed in our interview room suite, using video recording and trained actors to roleplay clinical scenarios and give valuable feedback. We plan to make the centre available for self-directed learning outside teaching hours and for exam refresher practicals.
You will have access to a collection of basic medical texts in the School Library as well as 24hr remote log-in access to a large selection of online resources including picture libraries, books, journals and articles. The Library has excellent computer facilities, as well as individual private study, and group study spaces.
Every student will have an email account and access to the web, as well as fast wi-fi service. Our intranet (QM+) will provide you with an extensive medical knowledge base, which includes key lecture notes, papers and research. Our intranet will also be our main administrative channel of communication (for example, distributing timetables, study plans and exam results, as well as learning materials).
All of our students will also have access to Queen Mary University of London‘s QM+ online learning environment, which will provide you with all the support material for your studies, including recorded lectures and exam practice papers.
