Proud to be breaking through biasAthena Swan Silver Award Winners


Medicine is a thriving and ambitious multidisciplinary faculty - a national leader in medical education, with an outstanding reputation for our combined expertise in research and teaching.

Having celebrated over 40 years of medicine at the University, we have trained thousands of doctors and scientists, and have led cutting edge research in areas as diverse as cancer, osteoporosis, asthma and nutrition. We lead innovative learning and discovery across the lifecourse from before birth to the elderly, by investing in multi-disciplinary research teams, creative educational programmes and initiating external partnerships and collaborations.

Challenging the disease of diabetes, focusing on care.

The UK alone faces a significant increase in the number of people with diabetes, with over 700 new cases diagnosed each day and, by 2030, the World Health Organization predicts diabetes will be the seventh leading cause of death globally. Our MSc Diabetes Best Practice is designed to equip workforces and individuals with the skills and knowledge to meet future diabetes healthcare demands in the UK and beyond.
