St Mary's is the youngest of the constituent schools of Imperial College London, founded in 1854 as part of the new hospital in Paddington During its existence in the 1980s and 1990s, it was the most popular medical school in the country, with an application to place ratio of 27:1 in 19961

St Mary's continued comparatively unmoved by the other nomadic medical schools in the area, until its merger with Imperial College in 1988, and the foundation of Imperial College School of Medicine in 1997 by the merger with Charing Cross and Westminster Medical School

Doctors to Beedit

Doctors to Be, a biographical documentary series first broadcast on BBC Two by BBC Television, followed 10 medical students who enrolled at St Mary's Hospital Medical School in the 1985 intake It started with admission interviews in November 1984, then followed their lives as medical students for five or six years, and ended with their first experiences of working as busy junior hospital doctors in the National Health Service2 A sequel Doctors to Be: 20 Years On was first broadcast on BBC Four in 2007 and provided an update on the careers and lives of the same people after they had qualified3

Student lifeedit

St Mary's Hospital, London was traditionally regarded as the refuge of sons of Welsh farmers and miners arriving by train from nearby Paddington station St Mary's Hospital Medical School thus developed a reputation for sporting prowess, with the rugby club actually predating the Rugby Football Union The sporting traditions of Mary's are reflected with its alumni, such as the Welsh rugby captain JPR Williams commemorated in the annual ICSM vs Imperial Varsity Rugby match, the JPR Williams Cup; and Roger Bannister commemorated in the annual ICSM vs Imperial Varsity athletics meet, the first man to run a mile in under four minutes

St Mary's Hospital has an equally rich history in the arts The dramatic society staged performances of operettas at Wilson House, London, which on occasion were graced with a royal visit This royal association continued until recent times with the Queen Mother being the patron of the soirée – the post opera comedy night – until her death in 2002 the post has remained unfilled following its failure to be won in the post-soirée raffle of the same year

The student clubs of the hospital had many United Hospitals victories
