The Barts and the London Men's Hockey Club (BLMHC) is composed of medical and dental students studying at Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry. In 1996, the club was formed from the merger of two London medical schools: the London Hospital Medical College and the Medical College of St Bartholomew's Hospital.[1] The club competes in the southeastern division of the British Universities and Colleges Sport (BUCS) and the London Universities Sports Leagues (LUSL) and competes annually against the four other London medical schools in the United Hospitals Cup.
