Imaging Sciences - Intercalated BSc at Kings College London, 2012
" My intercalation at Kings College London in Imaging Sciences was a phenomenal experience. I still remember arriving on my first day at Guys hospital in formal wear, preparing myself to drown in heap of work in a dark room. But actually….it was one of my most fun-filled and inspirational years of medical school!
The course structure is split into modules encompassing key aspects of imaging including ultrasonography, Magnetic resonance Imaging, X-rays, Nuclear medicine and computer integrated sciences. All lectures take place in the heart of central London either at Guy’s or St Thomas’ Hospital by leading clinicians and imaging scientists and are hosted in small interactive classrooms. The Imaging Institute at Kings College has a tremendous reputation and students are able to be involved in novel imaging research at the Rayne Institute.
The year is very diverse welcoming roughly 20 medical and dental students from universities nationwide; this creates an exciting mix and the opportunity to get to know the whole year group. The lecture schedule is extremely flexible and well spaced and this allows one to really experience life in central London. Through the year, the group made pit stops at famous sightseeing spots and areas of London.
The degree exams and dissertation deadlines are held at the end of the year thus allowing students to have a very relaxed year of learning does become slightly stressful towards the end. I had the privilege of being the BSc representative and we managed to organize several meals with lecturers and supervisors. I would seriously recommend this course to budding radiologists or oncologists or those with an interest in research. It is a great degree in a great location with enthusiastic clinicians and scientists! It is like a family and we even made customized hoodies to prove this! "
