Success through synergy. Collaborative education and research
Our academic units - Cancer Sciences; Clinical and Experimental Sciences; Human Development and Health; Primary Care and Population Sciences; and Medical Education - are each directed by leading academics who work together to deliver the Faculty's education and research strategies both within and across the units.
The Academic Unit of Medical Education is a distinctive and circumscribed unit that oversees the broad-based and vocational Bachelor of Medicine (BM) programmes. The BM programmes span academic units in the Faculty and have links to the wider University and NHS. Whilst colleagues in all academic units engage in the delivery of undergraduate and postgraduate education, the design and organisation of education programmes at Faculty level is co-ordinated by the Medical Education Academic Unit.
At Southampton the Faculty of Medicine leads the international research community in a range of major interdisciplinary research themes.
Our focused research strategy, covering the spectrum from basic science to clinical innovation, with an emphasis on translating new discoveries into healthcare practice.
