Within the Health faculties, our students – many of them the medics, doctors and medical practitioners of the future – have a unique and valuable opportunity to work, learn and serve their local communities within London’s hospitals and clinics.
Global Health in Local Practice, a module from the Faculty of Life Sciences & Medicine, is just one example. Focusing on the reproductive health of communities in south-east London where the Centre for Global Health and Health Partnerships is located, the module considers how international health issues impact on local patient care in Lambeth and Southwark.
Integrating local partnerships into the student experience is central to the commitments King’s has made in its Vision 2029. In every faculty, curricular and co-curricular learning programmes provide opportunities for our students to test their knowledge in real-world environments across the capital, supporting the university’s commitment to ensuring our students become the problem-solvers of the future.
