Twelve medical students from Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry enjoyed supper at the Hall on Thursday 7 March. The supper was also attended by members of the Company, including some who had previously received Barts awards, and staff from Barts.
The students are studying intercalated degrees in specialist subjects such as global public health, sports & exercise medicine and pharmacology. Intercalating provides an opportunity to focus on a particular area of medicine, carry out cutting-edge research and gain an extra qualification.
The Tallow Chandlers Benevolent Fund, with the Anya Sturdy Charitable Trust, awards annual bursaries to help intercalating students with these extra costs. There is also a special bursary – the Ensor/Zochonis Award – for an intercalated degree in oncology or neuroscience, awarded purely on merit.
