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.

In 2011/12 we celebrated 40 years of medicine at the University.  During this time 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.
