United Hospitals is the historical collective name of the medical schools of London. They are all part of the University of London (UL) with the exception of Imperial College School of Medicine which left in 2007. The original United Hospitals referred to Guy's Hospital and St Thomas's Hospital and their relationship prior to 1769. Since then the name has been adopted by the medicals schools.

In addition to inter-collegiate UL competitions, which include all UL colleges, the United Hospitals are engaged in an active series of sporting events against each other, and also at times as a united team.
