Anatomy Centre

A new Anatomy Centre next to Gozo General Hospital in Malta was formally opened on 19 December 2018. With a bespoke modern design, the building is equipped with the most up-to-date facilities to support anatomy and clinical skills teaching. 

The unique facility is a focus of teaching activity at Barts and The London's Malta campus. The building will also provide office accommodation for academic, technical and administrative staff.

A central feature of the building is its anatomy lab where students undertake practicals and tutors lead demonstrations using anatomical specimens and models. The lab includes a dedicated area for learning anatomy through dissection and is equipped with facilities for showing clinical images, videos of surgical procedures and specialised computer imaging.

The space includes a mortuary area, which has an embalming area with state of the art refrigeration and storage facilities. The building also has a central courtyard, which provides an outdoor space for students and staff.

Clinical and Communications Skills Centre

We will also have an exceptional Clinical and Communications Skills Centre, designed by the GMC-commended Barts London Team, to allow you to practise clinical methods and practical skills using patient simulators, models, video recordings and mock ward settings.

Your communications skills will be developed in our interview room suite, using video recording and trained actors to role-play clinical scenarios and provide valuable feedback. We plan to make the centre available for self-directed learning outside teaching hours and for exam refresher practicals.
