The GKT Medical Student’s Association represents the Student Body in communication with Faculty and supports Students in all areas. Guy’s, King’s & St. Thomas’ Hospitals are the three core teaching hospitals providing medical education to the students at King’s College London. Over the many hundred years that it has existed, this medical school has held a number of names, but for the students here, honouring our founding hospitals as the GKT School of Medical Education at KCL has proven favourite. Every year we also host the legendary MSA Freshers fortnight with several huge events over the course of two weeks from our annual Fresher's Fair to our GKT in the park music festival. Throughout the academic year we also host several large events including formal balls and end of exams parties!
