Selected medical students will undertake a five-week clinical attachment at Cleveland Clinic London as part of their final year of study. They will receive a curriculum of training from Cleveland Clinic London medical staff across one of the hospital’s areas of focus: neuroscience, perioperative medicine and ITU, orthopaedics and musculoskeletal, acute medicine and medical subspecialties, heart and vascular, and digestive diseases.

“We are very excited to bring Cleveland Clinic’s long-standing reputation for research and education together with such a prestigious United Kingdom medical school,” says Tommaso Falcone, MD, Chief Academic Officer at Cleveland Clinic London and professor of obstetrics, gynecology and reproductive biology at Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine. “For more than 100 years, Cleveland Clinic has been striving to learn and innovate through research and medical education, and we are pleased that students will have the opportunity to learn through our doctor-led model of care.”

The programme will be delivered by senior consultants through a combination of direct face-to-face learning and will involve a range of clinical activities including attending surgeries, medical rounds, multidisciplinary meetings, outpatient clinics and radiology meetings.

“As part of their studies, students will experience a new and innovative model of care with access to the global Cleveland Clinic healthcare system, and receive training on the latest technology in healthcare,” says Nick Losseff, MD, Medical Director for Strategic Alliances at Cleveland Clinic London, who will oversee the programme.

Professor Anthony Warrens, Dean for Education at the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry at Queen Mary, said, “Alongside their academic studies, clinical placements are essential to allow students to see and understand how theory aligns with the practicalities of medicine and healthcare, and to develop the very practical skills of interacting with patients. With supervised and expert practice, a student grows in experience and knowledge. They see first-hand how doctors work. Our students benefit from a wide range of clinical experience. We believe that our agreement with Cleveland Clinic London will be a valuable addition to that range, and we are delighted to add them to our portfolio of locations where our world-class medical students can undertake one of their many placements.”

Queen Mary runs a number of successful clinical arrangements with NHS hospitals, general practices and selected private organisations, such as hospices, across the U.K. and the world. The breadth of placement opportunities available to Queen Mary medical students enables them to explore different career paths and clinical settings while securing the experience needed to complete their degree.


Education has been a vital component of Cleveland Clinic since its founding in 1921. The Education Institute oversees world-class training programmes for doctors, nurses, medical students, residents and fellows, along with allied health professionals. In addition, Cleveland Clinic’s Center for Continuing Education provides a host of events, digital tools and journal activity to improve patient care through medical education.
